Nigeria: Kwara Promotes 12,000 Teachers

Ilorin — Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed has approved the promotion of over 12,000 primary and secondary school teachers in the state.

A breakdown of the figure shows that 10,046 primary school teachers and 2105 secondary school teachers benefitted from the promotion exercise.

This, according to the governor in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media, Dr. Femi Akorede was, "a testimony of his administration's commitment to the promotion of qualitative education in the state."

Ahmed said the teachers were promoted to motivate them to higher performance as well as a boost their economic welfare with enhanced pay.

He urged the newly-promoted teachers to reciprocate the gesture by redoubling their efforts to provide qualitative education to students.
