By Mohammed Suleiman, Dutse

The Jigawa State Government has recruited 1000 teachers with a call on them to be punctual, and dedicated to service, as their engagement was based on merit.

Speaking while presenting letters of the engagements to the beneficiaries at Ahmad Bello Hall, Dutse, Governor Umar Namadi also  tasked them to work hard as their permanent appointment would be based on performance.

The Governor said, the recruitment of temporary teachers was part of the State Government’s commitment to improving the educational sector and filling the existing teacher gap in the state.

“The J-Teach program will serve as a training ground for the teachers and through it the teachers will be absorbed into permanent and pensionable based on their commitment,” gov Namadi explained.

He stated that, the J-Teach teachers will be evaluated and those who have performed well will be given permanent and pensionable employment.

“Your recruitment as temporary J-Teach teachers is done based on merit and is based on the need of our secondary schools across the state,” he told the beneficiaries.

Mr Namadi who charged the newly recruited teachers to be fair and dedicated, said they would soon be posted to their various communities.

This recruitment is coming at a time when the government is trying to fill the vacuum of shortage of teachers to man most of it’s schools.

The State requires over 10,000 teachers following mass retirement, deaths or change of service cadres for many years without replacement.
