The Zamfara State Government on Monday said it would employ 1,000 teachers this year to address the problem of inadequate teachers in primary schools.
Gov. AbdulAziz Yari announced this at the 2017 May Day celebration in Gusau, saying that only candidates with National Certificate of Education (NCE) would be employed as teachers.
Yari, who was represented by his deputy, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala, said that the mass recruitment would enhance teaching and learning in state schools.
According to him, the recruitment would also create employment opportunities for unemployed graduates in the state.
On the 2017 Workers Day, Yari said the celebration was timely as negotiations between state government and labour over workers’ rights had been concluded.
