The Governor made this known after a meeting with the officials of the State ministries of Higher Education, Education and Borno State Universal Basic Education Board (BOSUBEB).
Zulum also said that immediately after the completion of the verification exercise, similar approval will be granted to the State Universal Basic Education Board to recruit more qualified primary school teachers.
Governor Zulum also directed the state ministry of education and the state Universal Basic Education Board to recruit some qualified retired teachers, particularly science teachers on ad hoc basis. This the Governor said is to bridge the gap of the existing shortage of science teachers across the state.
Recall that the governor had earlier bemoaned the rotten educational system which has led to the production of High school graduates who are not fit for University admission. This recent effort however is expected to boost the quality of education in the state.
