The Kano State Government said on Tuesday that it had recruited 998 new teachers for public secondary schools in the state.
Gov. Rabiu Kwankwaso made this known when he distributed appointment letters to newly recruited teachers employed into the state civil service.
NAN reports that those recruited, included teachers, laboratory attendants and library assistants.
Kwankwaso said that the introduction of free education necessitated the recruitment of the teachers to boost the manpower in the teaching profession in the state.
“The recruitment also became necessary so as to provide qualified staff with a view to improving teaching and learning in schools,” he said.
He further appealed to the new employees to be good ambassadors of the state wherever they found themselves.
“Our administration is vigorously pursuing mass literacy campaign to stamp out illiteracy from the state.”
In his remark, the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sunusi, represented by Waziri of Kano, Malam Sa’adu Gidado, tasked the newly employed teachers to regard their positions as a trust bestowed on them to breed future leaders.
