The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Hon. Wemi Jones said the decision was expedient to cover manpower gaps in the system.

He asserted that it was a general knowledge, the monumental infrastructural drive of the administration in the education sector, but nevertheless government realised that structures without adequate quality manpower would not yield the needed revolution in the sector.

He pointed out that the welfare of teachers going forward would take a place of priority in the state adding that they have been directed to ensure the 100% payment of teacher’s salary henceforth.

Hon. Wemi stated that other benefits such as housing, bonuses, would not be missing, reiterating that in months to come the lots of teachers in the state would witness progression

The Rivers governor also wished Bello, an All Progressives Congress presidential aspirant, success in the party’s forthcoming primaries.

“Your excellency, let me, first of all, commend you for what you are doing in Kogi. I have seen your Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff and other appointees that I have seen here are so young.

“Involving youths in governance is not just sending them to the social media for the campaign but engaging them in active governance the way you are doing here so, I commend you for what you are doing,” Wike said.

Bello in his response, thanked Wike for recognising his administration’s quest and efforts to mentor the younger generation.

Bello urged the visiting governor to tour the state and witness the developmental strides of his administration in Kogi.

He also urged Wike to interact with his party members and residents to ascertain the state of affairs in Kogi.
