KEHINDE AKINPELU, ILORIN

Kwara Emerging Leaders, KEL, has commended the state government for the recent recruitment of teachers into the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB and Teaching Service Commission, TESCOM, as part of its efforts at repositioning the state education sector.

The outcome of the exercise has conferred some degree of integrity and credibility on the entire process, adding that it is a testimony that the future is bright if government and the citizen could all muster the courage to adhere to due process.

“The entire recruitment exercise from the beginning and the method adopted shows that the government has kept one of its promise of ensuring that recruitment into the state civil service will be based on merit, which is a great improvement and shows that, as far as recruitment is concerned, it is not business as usual,” Head, Media & Public Relations of the group Dare Akogun said in a statement on Saturday.

While congratulating the successful applicants, he charged them to sustain their good performance and make it impactful on students by the time they engage them in the classrooms or other positions where they are posted to serve.

The Kwara Emerging Leaders, however, urged the state government to look into the salaries and welfare of teachers and workers in the state, which is still below the national minimum wage and periodic trainings, to serve as a way of motivating the teachers and workers to dedicate themselves to the job at hand.

If conditions of service is improved for civil servants in the state, the level of productivity will increase and many will not see government work as a stop gap measure till a better offer arrives from other sector.
