The Chairman, Ogun Teaching Service Commission, Mrs Olabosipo Ogunsan, on Friday said the commission had proposed to employ 1,000 teachers into the various secondary schools in the state.
Mrs. Ogunsan said this while defending the 2017 budget proposal of the commission before the Ogun House of Assembly Committee on Finance and Appropriation at the Assembly Complex in Abeokuta.
She said the commission had equally proposed to employ 200 non-teaching staff in order to ensure the success of the free and qualitative education programme in the state.
According to her, the commission would also train and retrain teaching and non-teaching staff for effective service delivery in view of its goal to provide more suitable environment for teaching, research and skill acquisition.
She said the commission would intensify efforts at strengthening supervision of quality assurance of staff.
Mrs. Ogunsan said TESCOM would embark on rehabilitation and repairs of 22 Zonal Offices to enhance its statutory operation, adding that it would also maximise the quality level of teaching through professionalism.
She also said the commission had earmarked N21 billion as its recurrent expenditure, while N78 million would be for capital expenditure.
