Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State on Wednesday said the state government had concluded arrangements to employ 90 science teachers before the end of the year.

The governor made this known during interactive session with students in the state at the Micheal Okpara Auditorium, Umuahia, the state capital.

He said the move was part of the state government’s efforts to boost science education in Abia.

He added that “the issue of dearth of science teachers in secondary schools has been of great concern and the state government has approved a waiver to facilitate the employment of 90 science teachers.

“We are also going to set up three mobile laboratories and will assign one laboratory to each federal constituency in the state. This is a measure to encourage science-based students.

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State said: “Education is nothing if it cannot illuminate your mind, thoughts and thinking process, and the state government is poised to encourage productivity in the education sector.”

The governor said that the Abia Government would partner with Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to provide tablet computers for students to enhance Information Communication Technology learning.

He explained that the curriculum of each student would be uploaded on the device to encourage hard work and adequate study of school work among students.

Mr Ikpeazu said that achieving infrastructure development in schools was not the sole responsibility of state government and called for cooperation from stakeholders.
