The Ogun State Government says it has employed 1,000 teachers for public schools as part of moves to enhance teaching and learning.
Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State said this on Thursday during the 2023 Teachers’ Day celebration held at the Obas Complex in Abeokuta, the state capital.
While giving assurances of more reforms in the education sector, he said: “We also approved the full employment of 1000 exceptional Ogun Teach members, who have distinguished themselves during their two-year probation period.
“We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the leadership and members of NUT, ASUSS, and AOPSHON for their selfless service.”
The governor noted that the state will engage “an additional 2,000 interns. This is in addition to the 2,000 interns already employed” in “our desire is to improve the teacher-student ratio, and in fulfillment of our promise to the hardworking and devoted members of Ogun Teach”.
