The Oyo State government has said that it will continue to provide enabling environment for teachers to thrive in Oyo State.
This was just as the government also pledged that it would also ensure uninterrupted payment of the teachers’ allowances, while it initiates befitting on-the-job trainings for them.
A release signed by Michael Ogunkoya on behalf of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, OyoSUBEB, Media Team quoted the Executive Chairman of Oyo SUBEB, Dr. Nureni Adeniran, as saying this today, Monday, October 5, 2020, during the World Teachers’ Day Celebration.
Adenirna also said that the state government would not rest on its oars in providing incentives to teachers, especially in the rural areas, to encourage young talents to join the teaching profession.
He said, “Teachers are one of the most influential forces for equity, access and quality in education. Engr. Seyi Makinde’s administration places much emphasis on human capital development.
“We will give more attention to training and re-training of teachers in order to enhance their capacities for effective service delivery.”
Adeniran also assured teachers that the state government is progressively addressing some of the fundamental issues of teachers and education in the state; adding that to revitalise the sector, there was a need to unleash the potentials for socio-economic development.
Noting that revitalising the sector had given rise to the training and re-training of teachers, Adenirna added that the process would be extended to teachers in the rural areas.
He also commended the efforts of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, NUT; Association of Primary School Head Teachers and other bodies who pursue teachers’ professionalism in a bid to strengthen teachers’ quality.
