Lagos State Government on Friday revealed that 65,818 applications were received for the 2,200 teaching job vacancies offered by state government after the deadline for the submission of applications ended at midnight on Thursday, September 6, 2018.
The Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Education, Mrs. Adebunmi Adekanye disclosed this after receiving reports on the exercise at the state government secretariat.
