According to a press statement issued by the Akwa Ibom state government and seen by Legit.ng on Thursday, November 26, the governor also ordered the release of the 2019 teachers’ promotion interview results.
The move is said to be in tune with the employment of 3500 teachers previously undertaken by the administration which is an ongoing process based on needs.
The state commissioner for information, Mr. Iniobong Ememobong, who briefed journalists attached to Government House, Uyo after the meeting, added that the EXCO also considered a report on the state of primary education.
Subsequently, the government set the first quarter of 2021 as the deadline to complete its ongoing interventions in 159 primary schools across the state. Experts say the recruitment of more teachers in Akwa Ibom is also part of the state government’s move to create more jobs.
