In Anambra, Soludo Presents Appointment Letters To 5,000 Teachers

Gov. Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra on Friday presented appointment letters to 5,000 recently enlisted teachers in the state.

While presenting appointment letters to 5,000 newly hired teachers in Awka, Soludo stated that the future of youths of Anambra lies in the hand of teachers.

The governor stated that the issuance of appointment letters fulfilled one of his manifesto’s goals of repositioning the education sector for the development of high-quality workers.

Today, we are keeping one of our promises; we promised to position Anambra as a centre of excellence for human capital development and proactively leapfrog our students/youths as Africa’s digital tribe.

“We have come to end the era of schools without teachers in our primary and secondary schools, with the recruitment and deployment of 5,000 new teachers.

“It marks yet another milestone in Anambra’s bold march towards a liveable and prosperous smart mega city, one that is the preferred destination to live, learn, work, invest, relax and enjoy.

“My fellow teachers, the future of our children and the next generation is in your hands. Anambra, the Light of the Nation, is known for excellence,” he said.

Soludo said he was pleased with the recruitment process, but he also said that no big exercise of such magnitude would hold without some complaints.
He stated that it was a process that was close to perfect and was created from the beginning to be unique, transparent, and honest.

My instruction was that only merit can get anyone a placement in the recruitment exercise, the phenomenon of well-placed persons being given “slots” to nominate candidates for recruitment should never happen.

“To demonstrate my commitment to this, I instructed that even if I were to give them any name(s) for employment, they should throw such away.

“Teaching is not just a job, it is a vocation and no one should be employed as a teacher on any consideration other than merit.

“We should never in good conscience sacrifice the future of a generation on the altar of favoritism, and state of origin was not a disqualifying factor.

“Our children need the best teachers irrespective of where they come from,” he said.

Soludo said he was pleased with the recruitment process, but he also said that no big exercise of such magnitude would hold without some complaints.
He stated that it was a process that was close to perfect and was created from the beginning to be unique, transparent, and honest.

“Let me suggest that educating our next generation is our collective responsibility, Public-Community- Private Partnership (PCPP) is the winning model for the future,” he said.
