Edo NUT bemoans dearth of teachers in secondary schools

The Edo wing of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) on Wednesday bemoaned the dearth of teachers in public secondary schools across the state.

The state Secretary of the Union, Mr Mike Itua, said in an interview with the Newsmen in Benin that the problem would have adverse effect on students’ performance.

Itua said that the state government must urgently recruit more teachers, in order to maintain standard in the schools.

According to him, the situation will degenerate to a state of emergency, if new teachers are not employed before the end of the year, because more teachers would be retiring.

Itua, however, said that in spite of the challenges, Gov. Godwin Obaseki, meant well for the sector as he had pledged to commit 60 per cent of the state budget to education.

The NUT secretary noted that already, the State Universal Basic Education Board had taken steps towards recruiting more personnel into the education sector, while some Federal Government N-power recruits have been posted to teach.

He commended the government for the total revamping and overhauling of infrastructure in the sector, saying “the Adams Oshiomhole Administration started it when our present governor was the Chairman of the state’s economic team.

“Now that he is governor, I tell you without fear of contradiction that he is building on the successes of his predecessor”.
