It was gathered on Monday that the directive for the cancellation was with immediate effect. The development has made applicants to panic, as they do not know their fate.
About 40,000 applicants applied for the online job the first time, while 31,800 were shortlisted for interview.
But following what played out during the first exercise, the governor angrily cancelled the exercise, as he wanted to get it right for the state.
The Governor wants a transparent exercise about the recruitment.
On Sunday, the Ministry of Education released a list of about 5,000 recruited teachers, which sparked condemnation across the state.
Contacted, Information Commissioner Sir Paul Nwosu did not pick his calls.
But a senior officer in the Ministry of Education, who did not want to be quoted, confirmed the directive to the media.
The source said some people had made it a point of duty to frustrate Soludo, adding that it would not work because the governor was serious in getting the best for Ndi Anambra.
