Addressing journalists after the state wing executive council, SWEC, met at the union’s secretariat, Umar said between 2015 and 2017 there was no recruitment of new teachers to fill the vacuum created in the sector.

His words: “No fewer than 2000 teachers have died, 970 transferred to other sectors, while many others have also retired within the same period.

“To save the sector from collapse, we implore the state government to recruit more teachers to fill in the vacuum created as a result of retirement, death and transfer of service.”
