Anambra State Government to recruit more teachers into public schools – Soludo


The Governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo has directed the State’s Head of Service to announce the recruitment of more teachers into the public schools across the state.

Soludo who gave the directive on Sunday at an event to mark this year’s Workers Day at the Dr. Alex Ekwueme Square in Awka insisted that the process must be transparent and merit based.

“In the coming days, details of how to apply and the screening method shall be made public”, Soludo said.

He stated that having listened to the Anambra State Chairperson of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), and her Trade Union Congress (TUC) counterpart read out their charter of demands, his government together with the various Unions and their leadership, fashion out the best ways to meet these demands within the limits of the state’s lean resources and in line with the development plan of the state.

“I am committed to ensuring the safety and improving the welfare of the Anambra Worker. 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”, he said.

While thanking the Workers for their continued support and urging them to always see their work as service to humanity, he added that “in spite of the sad event of the demise of my friend Joe (Anatune), whose appointment as the Managing Director of the Anambra Signage and Advertisement Agency (ANSAA) was announced barely two weeks ago, I joined the Anambra Workers to commemorate this year’s May Day at the Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka. Of course this is my first May Day outing as the Governor of the State.

“Everyone legitimately and productively contributing to the socioeconomic 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.’

“Maka na eji ịgba mbọ mara ndị Anambra.”
