To hire 7,000 qualified teachers for the state, the Katsina State Government will hold recruitment exams.
In a statement, Gov.Dikko Radda’s Chief Press Secretary, Ibrahim Kaula Mohammed, said the initiative is a part of the administration’s efforts to create a robust and vibrant educational system for the state by giving merit and competency a high priority when choosing instructors.
Malam Faruk Lawal Jobe, the deputy governor of Katsina State, emphasized the scope of the exercise when he inaugurated the committee in charge of holding the recruitment exams in his office. The exercise involves two categories of candidates: 2,000 graduates teaching in secondary schools and 5,000 NCE/Diploma holders currently working in primary schools.
Jobe also emphasized the significance of evaluating the most recent hiring procedure, in which the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) hastily hired 3,889 teachers. To ensure that only competent and qualified candidates are accepted into the state’s teaching service, those hired earlier are also required to take part in the recruitment exams.
The deputy governor gave his word that strict procedures will be used to ensure fairness and integrity throughout the hiring process.
The committee has four weeks to complete the task and deliver its findings. It is led by Sabi’u Ahiru, and Lurwanu Haruna Gona serves as secretary.
The committee members and the educational consultant business tasked with creating the exam were earlier instructed to carry out their jobs with the utmost fairness and impartiality by the Secretary to the Government of the State, Architect Ahmad Musa Dangiwa.
