According to him, 400 new teachers were, also, recruited by the State Government into public secondary schools in the State in the recent recruitment exercise.

He added that despite the initial hiccups in the recruitment process caused by the outbreak of COVID -19 and the attendant lockdown as well as the effects of the ‘ENDSARS’ protest, which disrupted virtually all aspects of daily life for the greater part of the year, the State Universal Education Board (SUBEB) had commenced verification of results of successful candidates which is a prelude to the distribution of their letters of appointment while the Office of Establishment is also set to release the results of junior applicants into the Civil Service.

The Commissioner said that the State Government should be commended for its efforts despite the global pandemic that practically shut down the entire system and the effects of the ‘END SARS’ protests that followed.

He stressed that the recruitment exercise was almost concluded before the coronavirus outbreak, adding that very little could, however, be done until after the lockdown.
Omole also said that the appointments were strictly based on merit by global best practice irrespective of background, gender and religion.
