All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate for the September 19 Edo governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu has come out to say that recruiting teachers will be his priority if he is voted as Governor.
Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu revealed it during his ward-to-ward campaign on Tuesday at Arokho, Otuo, and Uahumi communities in Owan East Local Government Area of Edo.
According to him, several schools in the state, especially those in rural areas, do not have core subject teachers and they also lack basic learning facilities.
He added that he simply wants to make life better for all Edo people through manpower development, job creation, and leadership by example.
His words, “We have schools but no teachers to teach our students; teachers retire on a daily basis but the present state government has refused to employ more teachers.
“I promise to prioritise the employment of teachers in our schools to ensure our students get the right knowledge to become future leaders,”
“My SIMPLE agenda is to make life better for all Edo people through manpower development, job creation, leadership by example and infrastructural development, among others.
“This council is known for farming. I promise to assist farmers with loans and farm inputs if elected Edo Governor.”
