The Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, has approved the employment of 1,850 basic and senior secondary school teachers in the state to fill teacher shortages in science subjects and to also create fresh employment in the state.

Governor Ahmed approved the employments following separate requests by the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and the Kwara State Teaching Service Commission (TSC), according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communication, Dr. Muyideen Akorede on Wednesday.

The two organisations based their requests on existing teacher shortages in the state, especially in English Language and Science subjects.

According to the statement, Governor Ahmed approved the recruitment of 1500 SUBEB teachers and 350 Senior Secondary School teachers.

The teacher shortages in the state persist despite recent interventions by the state government through its Kwara State Youth Empowerment Program (KWAYEP) and the federal government’s NPower Scheme, prompting the state Governor to grant the fresh approval for employment.

Governor Ahmed also directed SUBEB and TSC to advertise the positions in the media and ensure that due process is followed in the recruitment while ensuring spread across the 193 wards in the state.
