The Borno state Chapter of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) says about 6,000 additional teachers are required in the state.
This according to the union is in a deliberate attempt to improve the quality of education in the state.
Naija News understands that the Chairman of the NUT, Jibril Muhammed, told journalists that at least 5,000 teachers were required for primary schools while an additional 1,000 should be deployed to secondary schools to boost teaching and learning in the state.
He commended the government for prioritising education in the state, but emphasised the need for the state government to prioritise the welfare of teachers deployed to schools in the state.
“The government is building state of the art schools with decent environment, but our teachers lack motivation. It is my firm believe that with the necessary motivations for our teachers, the problems in our education sector will be solved.”
