Governor says Obaseki will improve quality of education

The Edo Governor also revealed that his administration will employ more teachers before he leaves office.

Oshiomhole said this at an event organised by the “We Care Trust Foundation”, a pet project of the First Lady of the state, Iara Oshiomhole.

According to Vanguard, he also said “My take away from this meeting is that the Commissioner for Education, before he retires next week, must between now and Tuesday, give me a list of Mathematics teachers, English Language, English Literature, Geography, Science teachers and Art teachers.

“We have already done the interview; we will select a number and will post them to your schools next week before the end of my tenure, so that you will be able to say that, when you met with the governor, you told him that you needed Mathematics teachers and five days later a Mathematics teacher resumed in your school.

“Also, Physics teachers, and teachers of other subjects will be employed. In many of your schools, you are happy with the buildings, the equipment, but even for the laboratory equipment, you need modern ones, and where you don’t have, they will be provided. I am not sure how long it takes to order them and to have them delivered because we don’t have them right now in any warehouse now.

“So, we won’t be able to deliver those before the end of my tenure, but I will do a memo, I will sign, and Godwin Obaseki, when he assumes office, will ensure those equipment are provided.”

Speaking also, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), said Gov. Adams Oshiomhole has changed the narrative of the state.
