Hope rises for 2000 Enugu recruited teachers

HOPE for reversal of the annulment of the recent recruitment of 2000 teachers by the Enugu State House of Assembly gets brighter as Commissioner for Education, Enugu State, Professor Uche Eze, on

Tuesday, stoutly defended the recruitment exercise done by the State Universal Basic Education Board ( ENSUBEB).

In short, he said that although no process of that nature was error free, but in his estimation, the exercise had 70 per cent success and urged that the rest of the process be allowed to continue.

Professor Eze said that the exercise went well and that he supervised every process of the recruitment.

It will be recalled that last month, the Enugu State House of Assembly resolved that the recruitment exercise aimed at employing about 2000 primary school teachers be nullified because irregularities were noticed during the recruitment exercise.

Sequel to the perceived irregularities, the House had invited the Chairman of ESUBEB, Chief Ikeje Asogwa to appear before it and when not satisfied with his explanation, went ahead to invite the commissioner of the supervising ministry, Ministry of Education, Professor Uche, to come and explain the role of his ministry during the exercise.
