The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has approved the promotion of 4,951 teaching and non teaching staff of schools in the state.

The promoted staff were successful in a Teaching Service Commission promotion exercise held in 2011.

The Chairperson of the Teaching Service Commission, Olubukunola Onabanjo, disclosed this in a statement in Abeokuta. She said 3,875 are senior staff while 1075 are junior staff.

Ms. Onabanjo added that of the staff promoted, 1,132 are non teaching staff: including security men, cleaners, messengers, clerical officers, executive officers (account and general duties) and secretarial assistants. The other 3, 819 are teachers.

In a statement, Ms. Onabanjo said that though the promotion will be back-dated to take effect from July 1, 2011, salary payment for the new position will only commence on July 1, 2012.

The commission’s chairman charged the staff to intensify efforts at promoting the ‘rebuilding mission’ of the government. She assured the staff that government would continue to provide an enabling environment for the development of education in the state.

“The Amosun government, which is implementing a free, affordable and qualitative education in the pubic primary and secondary schools in the state has not relented in its efforts at boosting the morale of teachers as it reviewed upward their rural allowance,” Ms. Onabanjo said

“It has also organised a capacity training workshop for 1000 teachers and school administrators, in collaboration with a publishing firm, Learn Africa Plc, and paid burial entitlements to families of dead teachers who died in active service,” she added.
