2,000 teachers to be redeployed in Oyo

The Oyo State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof. Joseph Olowofela, said 2,000 teachers who possessed higher certificates than their present status in the state primary schools would be redeployed to secondary schools as part of the ongoing schools’ reform by the government.

This followed the state government’s decision to implement the white paper of a committee inaugurated on July 12, 2016 after protests greeted the state government’s plan to involve stakeholders in the management of 31 public secondary schools in the state.

Olowofela said the aim of the directive was to optimise output and ensure that the standard of education in the state was improved.

He said, “What the government wants to achieve is efficiency to optimise output and to restructure workforce to enhance efficiency and productivity in the education sector.”

The state government recently released the white paper on its education reform drive to address the rot in the education sector. Under the new reforms, each public school will get a Governing Board that will manage its affairs.

The committee’s recommendations adopted by the government include the classification of the schools into five categories, restructuring of education agencies for effective interaction and information management, adoption of schools by willing partners, equitable distribution of teachers, improvement of quality assurance and implementation of the Education Trust Fund.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
