By Dipo Olowookere No fewer than 100 teachers have been posted to Oyo State by the federal government to boost the quality of the education in the south-west state. The educators were transferred to Oyo State through the Federal Teachers Scheme (FTS) facilitated by the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC). Business Post reports that the 100 teachers sent to the state were among the 3700 candidates who met the cut off marks of the FTS examinations conducted across the country last month. Recall that in November, about 14,729 candidates sat for the 2020\/2021 FTS exam for teachers simultaneously in 74 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)-approved centres. Addressing the 100 teachers transferred to the state on Monday, the Executive Chairman of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Nureni Adeniran, admonished them to show commitment to their duties, and justify their selection into the scheme. He promised Oyo State government\u2019s willingness to integrate them into the state's service if they perform well at their duty-posts. Dr Adeniran revealed that the 100 teachers would be deployed to various schools in Oyo State, adding that the teachers' skills will be utilized in the next two years. \u201cAs far as our public primary schools are concerned, this scheme will go a long way in terms of the number of teachers that can adequately meet the population of pupils and schools in the state,\u201d he said. He said the deployment of teachers would bridge the gap in the education sector, particularly in the area of manpower, noting that the scheme was meant to assist the state post teachers to schools in the state. The Executive Chairman further said that the selection of the teachers cut across the 33 local government areas of the state. \u201cThough we need more hands in the system, with additional 100 teachers from the scheme, this will help to cater for the pupils we have',\u201d he said.
