Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has directed all Vice Principals of secondary schools and assistant headteachers in primary schools to start teaching students in classes.
The Permanent Secretary, ministry of education, science and technology, Mrs Lola Amuda conveyed governor Akeredolu’s directive while addressing some school Principals in Akure.
The directive is also to bridge gap of inadequate teachers in both primary and secondary schools in the state.
Mrs Amuda quoted the governor as saying pending the time when the state would address shortage of teachers in public schools, all vice principals must return to classes.
The permanent secretary however pointed out that some vice principals had already taken up the challenge, urging others to comply to governor Akeredolu’s directive with immediate effect.
Reacting, Some Principals urged the education ministry to translate the directive to a circular for all schools so as to avoid confusion that might arise between the principals and their principals.
