Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State has directed the recruitment of more teachers into public schools.
He made this known in his speech at the Worker’s Day celebration at the Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka on Sunday.
While commending the workers, the governor assured them of safety and better welfare.
He said, “Everyone legitimately and productively contributing to the socio-economic development of Society is a Worker. Thus, if productivity is the common denominator for identifying Workers, I can boldly say May 1st can as well pass for “Anambra’s Day”.
“I listened carefully as the Anambra State Chairperson of the Nigeria Labour Congress, and her Trade Union Congress counterpart read out their charter of demands. Together with the various Unions and their leadership, we shall fashion out the best ways to meet these demands within the limits of our lean resources, and in line with the development plan of the State.
“I have also directed the Head of Service to announce the recruitment of more Teachers into our Public schools. This process must be transparent and merit-based. In the coming days, details of how to apply and the screening method shall be made public.
I am committed to ensuring the safety and improving the welfare of the Anambra workers. Transforming the operational processes of the State civil service to be in line with the technological realities of the time is one sure vision that must be actualised. I thank the Workers for their continued support, urging them to always see their work as a service to humanity.”
