The Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Education, Adebunmi Adekanye, who disclosed this today after receiving reports on the exercise, said the huge number of applications was mostly influenced by the prompt payment of salaries and the welfare package of the Lagos State for teachers and other employees of the State.
