Delta to recruit 1,500 teachers—- Commissioner



The Delta government on Tuesday approved the hiring of 1,500 teachers for its secondary schools as part of plans to boost education in the state.

The State Information Commissioner, Mr. Charles Aniagwu, told reporters in Asaba that it was part of the decisions made at a recent State Executive Council (EXCO).

The Nigerian News Agency reports that the administration led by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had hired some 1,000 science teachers in its secondary schools across the state three years ago.

Aniagwu said the conscription became necessary to fill gaps in all subjects caused by deaths, retirements and the establishment of new schools across the state.

He said recruitment would be based on merit and without political influence, adding that interviews would be conducted by computer.
