Yobe recruits 3000 teachers, refurbishes 300 classrooms destroyed by Boko Haram

Yobe state has employed 3,000 new teachers and refurbished over 300 schools destroyed by Boko Haram insurgents.

The Director of Press to the state Governor, Abdullahi Bego, revealed this while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday.

He said the government is trying to avoid gaps in its education system.

"About 3,000 teachers have been recruited and posted to schools across the state to boost manpower requirement to improve the standard of education in the state," Bego said.

"The state government has committed enormous resources in rehabilitation and provision of instructional materials to primary and secondary schools to ensure that communities whose schools were destroyed by insurgents get back to school."

Yobe is one of the states most affected by the Boko Haram insurgency.

The insurgents deliberately targeted many schools at the peak of violence, leading to the closure of several schools.

One of the deadliest attacks happened at the Government Comprehensive Senior Science Secondary School, Potiskum,

At least 48 students died in the bomb attack.
