83 get permanent appointment after 20 years in service
A total of 83 workers of Taraba State Broadcasting Service have been offered permanent appointment, 20 years after some of them started work at the station.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that those affected had served the station, owned by the Taraba Government, for between five to 20 years as adhoc staff.
They included presenters, artists, reporters, engineers among others.
The state Commissioner for Information, Mr Anthony Danburam, said in Jalingo on Wednesday that the affected workers would soon be given appointment letters.
Danburam, who was inspecting digitisation equipment of Taraba Television, said over 20 more would be recruited for the station.
The commissioner said that the gesture was to reposition media outlets in the state, to make them result oriented.
Danburam advised the workers to render effective service to the state, to justify their appointment.
