Uzodinma warns teachers against rejecting rural postings in Imo

Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has cautioned teachers in the state against rejecting postings to any school, especially rural areas, except on verifiable health grounds or marital status.

The governor stated this on Thursday while flagging off the bio-attendance system/verification at the Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu Stadium Owerri , Imo State.

Uzodinma who personally supervised the collation of data – registration and image capturing – of secondary school teachers and non teaching staff of the secondary School Management in Imo State from the 27 local government areas said the exercise became necessary to ensure that teachers receive their salaries every month and get their promotions that have lingered since 2014.

While calling the attention of the teachers to the abuse of postings linked to most of them the Governor informed the teachers and their heads that they were invited to be physically verified and their image captured preparatory to final nominal roll that will be used for their monthly salaries and for promotion purposes.

Governor Uzodimma who also acknowledged the shortage of teachers in the state secondary schools assured that as soon as the nominal roll of teachers is streamlined new ones will be employed.

In his remarks, the Commissioner for Education in Imo State, Prof. Sylvester Okorondu, told the Governor that the secondary school teachers and staff of SEMB from the three zones of the state had gathered for capturing and for the government to know their actual number which will help to streamline their monthly payments, promotions and eventually, retirement.
