The Executive Chairman of Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB), Mr. Wahab Alawiye-King has congratulated the newly recruited 2,000 primary school teachers for scaling through the very rigorous screening exercise and being able to gain employment among many other qualified applicants.
As disclosed on the official Twitter account of The Lagos State Government, He expressed delight seeing passionate individuals as applicants for teaching jobs, stressing that the professional level, which teaching has now assumed, shows that qualified individuals could now be employed as teachers.
Speaking at an induction ceremony organised for the newly recruited teachers at LASUBEB office in Maryland today, the Chairman underscored the indispensability of the Public Service Rules, Financial Regulations and some other vital service documents to the new employees.
The induction programme, according to Alawiye-King, was important considering the different backgrounds of the new employees who are fresh in the system, especially in guiding against ignorance that could make them run foul of some laid down procedures in service.
He further advised the teachers to familiarise themselves with all necessary public service documents that would aid the discharge of their duties to the State Government.
However, the Director-General of Public Service Staff Development Center, Dr. Senukon Ajose-Harrison challenged the teachers to think “outside the box”, broaden their horizon and keep abreast of what happens in other places across the world, especially in the sphere of teaching.
