Good news to job seekers as the executive governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode, is set to employ another 1200 teachers for junior and secondary schools in the state.
NIGERIA NEWS notes that Ambode, on Friday, August 3, approved the recruitment of additional 1200 teachers to the 1000 teachers which his administration had approved for recruitment into primary schools.
The governor, at the last quarterly Town Hall meeting at Ibeju Lekki, had promised that his administration would employ more teachers into public schools to meet up with the manpower required to cover all public schools in the state.
The deputy governor of the state, Idiat Adebule, while confirming the development said the 1200 teachers was an addition to the 1000 teachers which the governor had approved for recruitment into primary schools in the state.
Ms Adebule, who superintends over the ministry of education, said guidelines for the application would be made public soon in accordance with the civil service rules.
According to her, the development would further aid teaching and learning in the public schools which have been attracting more enrollment in the last three years as a result of the improved infrastructure and welfare of teaching and non-teaching staff.
Speaking further, the deputy governor said the improved facilities and staff motivation was evident in the high-performance rate of the students of the state in local and international competitions.
In a related development, NIGERIA NEWS had reported that the federal government revealed when the Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge rail line would be delivered.
