Fasttrack Recruitment Of Teachers-NUT Asks Ogun Govt.

Nigeria Union of Teachers NUT has asked the Ogun State Government to fastrack its ongoing recruitment process of teachers, under the Teaching Experience Acquisition programme" Ogun TEACh Scheme", before the resumption of schools this coming Monday, September 13 for the new 2021-2022 academic session 

Secretary of the State Wing of the union, Comrade Samson Oyelere in an exclusive interview with Edu-Biznews in Abeokuta, the state capital on Wednesday,said fast-tracking the recruitment excercise would enable teachers being recruited under the Ogun TEACh format to resume along with the pupils in public primary and secondary schools

NUT added that the immediate recruitment of the teachers would address the insufficiency of teachers in public schools in the state and reduce stress of teachers in the system

"There is no doubt it that the most crucial resource in the education sector is the teacher and so insufficient teachers in our classrooms today is creating a lot of stress, over loaded work on our teachers and making many of them to over labour themselves in their various classrooms ", the stated 

Edu-Biznews recalled that the State Government concluded its final stage of the recruitment process on 10th of June  with the oral interview for the shortlisted candidates for 5,000 vacancies in the service, which are yet to be occupied, almost three months after the excercise 

But NUT expressed confidence in the readiness of the Prince Dapo Abiodun's administration in addressing the shortage of teachers before resumption of schools next week Monday

"We in Nigeria Union of Teachers NUT believe so much in the pronouncement of His Excellency ,Prince Dapo Abiodun that as the schools resume those to be employed through Ogun TEACh Scheme will resume along with them"

"We are aware that  the compilation is ongoing, we are aware that they are putting finishing touches to this process, so we have no doubt in our minds that before the schools resume along with students, these set of teachers would have been recruited and given letters of appointment and also resume along with others", NUT submitted
