Not less than 1,200 infrastructural projects have been executed in public schools across Ekiti State under the Universal Basic Education (UBE) programme.
This is a result of the over N7.6 billion counterpart fund paid by the Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) to the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC).
Governor Kayode Fayemi disclosed this on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.
He added that no fewer than 2000 teachers have undergone training in Ekiti State, including the 600 recruits and 100 teachers selected under the Federal Teachers Scheme.
The Governor, represented by his deputy, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi disclosed this at the opening ceremony of a five-day training workshop on pedagogical competencies and digital literacy for newly recruited teachers of public primary schools in Ado Ekiti, saying the administration would always prioritise teachers’ welfare.
A statement by the Special Assistant (Media) to the Deputy Governor, Odunayo Ogunmola, said the training programme was designed to introduce the teachers as new employees in the public service and to their roles and duties as teachers with the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
