Chairman of Edo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Dr Joan Oviawe has described the Godwin Obaseki-led administration as essentially the most teacher-friendly government in Nigeria.
In keeping with her, main school teachers in Edo have been among the many greatest well-treated within the nation.
Her stand is following the proposed indefinite strike of teachers scheduled to start out January 18.
Oviawe, who spoke on Thursday in Benin, noted that the take-home pay of teachers was more than that of an average civil servant.
She stated: “There is no basis for the deliberate January 18 strike by teachers as Governor Obaseki has carried out a lot for them.
“Edo State doesn’t have any subject with anyone. The government has been pro-teachers. Solely three of the 18 councils owe main faculty teachers.”
Oviawe hinted that SUBEB had educated 11,400 teachers within the final two years. She stated Edo was the one state in Nigeria that had educated such excessive variety of teachers. She additionally stated community-based teachers can be recruited and trained this year.
