They spoke on Wednesday during an open engagement with the governor at the Government House to feel their pulse on the government’s focus on basic education.

A statement by the governor’s chief press secretary (CPS), Rafiu Ajakaye, said about 300 school principals attended the meeting alongside some key stakeholders from across the education sector in Kwara State ahead of the school resumption in the state next Monday.

They pleaded that the governor commits more funds to laboratories in the schools and do more to offset the arrears of salaries he met in 2019. 

The teachers who also acknowledged the improvements in their wages and teaching environments further advocated the recruitment of more science and language teachers.

Chairman of SUBEB, Prof Shehu Raheem Adaramaja, who described the interactive session as historic said two issues concerning the teacher’s disparity were already resolved.

He said the remaining two would also be resolved. 

AbdulRazaq, for his part, acknowledged all the issues raised by the teachers and said the administration remained committed to the total turnaround of the education sector so that Kwara could reclaim its place in the North and Nigeria as a whole.
