He claimed that his government employed 5,000 teachers and promoted all teachers who had not been promoted in the last nine years, and that these were part of the efforts of his government on improving the teaching and learning processes in the state.

He further explained that the enrolment of primary school pupils had increased from one million to more than 2.2 million from 2015 to date, noting that this was achieved because of his administration’s strategies in the education sector.
