FG to begin recruitment of 500,000 teachers soon, says Ngige

By Wahab Akanji, Abuja 

Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige has stated that the Federal Government would soon commence the recruitment of 500,000 teachers. 

Ngige also stated that the government will also carry out other employment programmes promised by it during the campaigns in July, 2016. 

Speaking at the 105th session of the International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, Ngige said the government will soon open a portal for interested Nigerians to apply, pointing out that qualified Nigerians will be screened, while those successful will be subjected to special training before being deployed to schools to teach. 

He said further that there was the need for state government across the country to cue into the programme since the schools are located in the states. 

The Minister also laid to rest speculations that the various poverty alleviation programmes put in place by the Buhari administration were aimed at compensating loyalists of the APC who contributed to the success of the party in the 2015 general election. 

“The programmes will take off immediately the cash backing is released. We have agreed that the first cash backing will be for the capital development especially in areas like construction because they are the ones we expect to bring back the workers they have either laid off or stood up when they were being owed so that they can bring back their workers to site.

“We also need to do the railways like the Lagos/Calabar and Lagos/Kano rail project so that people will go and work there. After that has been done, the cash backing for the programmes I have mentioned will be made. But the enrolment for the graduates will take off by next month when the portals will be opened for people to register.
