A team of inspectors from the Bayelsa State Ministry of Education is to embark on an on-the-spot assessment of primary and post-primary schools across the state.
The exercise, which is expected to commence from Tuesday October 18 2016
(next week) is to ensure that, all categories of academic and non academic staff in primary and post primary schools have complied with the recent directive by the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) to call off the seat at home action by teachers.
A statement issued on Saturday by the State Commissioner of Education, Hon. Markson Fefegha, said the directive of the NUT makes it mandatory for all teaching and non teaching staff to resume work from Monday, next week, October 17 2016.
He warned that any staff who willfully absent themselves from duty would be declared ‘ghost workers’ and replaced immediately.
The statement advised all headmasters and principals to ensure strict compliance with the team of inspectors.
