He added that many schools are deprived of quality and adequate teachers which gave birth to the expedience  of employing new teachers, tagged “Ogun teach”, that would  impart knowledge for two consecutive years before they could be considered as full staff.  

“We have made a unilateral decision to employ teachers with maximum education potentials in order to allow education thrive in the state”, Ifede said

Ifede, however advised  education stakeholders to involve Old Student Associations, Communities, and Parents to execute projects that would advance education in the state, saying that this would assist the Government in its ongoing transformation.
