Gombe State: Governor Yahaya approves recruitment of 1,000 Teachers

Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has approved the recruitment of 1,000 new teachers by the State Teachers’ Service Commission, as part of efforts to consolidate on the objectives of his declaration of a state of emergency on the education sector.

The Chairman of the Teachers’ Service Commission, Mrs Naomi Philip Maiguwa, said the Governor’s approval was as a result of his genuine concern over the shortage of teachers in public secondary schools across the state.

Mrs Maiguwa also said Governor Yahaya had also approved the transfer of 288 staff of the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, who had applied for transfer of service from the board for placement into the State Ministry of Education’s secondary schools and technical colleges.

She said the development was one of the steps taken by the governor to turn around the fortunes of education in the state.

According to her, the governor consented to kick-start the teachers’ recruitment process at the Teachers’ Service Commission, in continuation of the process to place qualified teachers in the state’s post-basic education schools.

The Gombe State Chairman of the Teachers’ Service Commission said it was the first time since the creation of Gombe State that the government was recruiting and deploying as many as 1, 288 teachers.

She said the last exercise was carried out in August 2018, with 700 teachers recruited.
