Ogun State Government to manage 28 community schools, 577 teachers
Ogun State Government has taken over the management of 28 community schools across the state and has also absorbed 577 teachers in these schools into its civil service system.
Mrs Aderonke Soyombo, Special Adviser to the Governor on Primary, Secondary and Vocational Education, said the primary interest was in the number of children that would be affected as the figure would have risen to 9,000 pupils if they were not absorbed.
She stated further that the community schools were absorbed by the Prince Dapo Abiodun administration after they were rejected and left alone by the immediate past administration in the state.
Soyombo also disclosed that the absorption of the 577 teachers won’t affect the current process of recruiting 1500 teachers into the state owned schools.
