Taraba Commissioner Seeks More Corps Members Posted To Publi

The Taraba State Commissioner of Education, Augustina Godwin, has called for the posting of more corps members to public schools across the state.

The commissioner made the call when she visited the State Secretariat of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Jalingo, the state's capital.

She was received by the NYSC State Coordinator, Anthony M. Nzoka alongside other management team of the NYSC.

According to the Commissioner, the visit was to seek the support of the NYSC in posting more corps members to public schools, following Governor Agbu Kefas's declaration of free and compulsory education in the state.

She noted that deploying more corps members to various public schools across the state would help to boost teaching and learning experiences in the state.

As contained in a statement by the Education Ministry, "Presenting her request, the Honourable Commissioner assured the State Coordinator of the Ministry's readiness to improve the welfare of all the Corps Members deployed to public basic and secondary schools to consolidate the moving forward agenda of His Excellency, Dr Agbu Kefas.

"Recall that the declaration of a state of emergency on education by His Excellency, Dr Agbu Kefas is timely, hence the need to equip all the public schools with the necessary resources for effective and efficient performance."

The Commissioner was accompanied by the Secretary of the Ministry, Executive Secretaries of the Taraba Post Primary Management Board (TPPMB), the State Universal Basic Education Board and Directors from boards and parastatals.

"The Executive Secretaries of TPPMB and SUBEB added their voices in support of the passionate plea of the Honourable Commissioner and assured the scheme of their unwavering support and sound commitment towards achieving this noble goal," the statement added.

On his part, the NYSC State Coordinator, Nzoka, appreciated the commissioner for the visit, noting that it was the first time the office received an Education Commissioner in the state. 

He also congratulated the commissioner on her well-deserved appointment, praying that "God helps her to have a successful tenure."

Nzoka further assured that the NYSC would do its best to support the policies and initiatives of the State Governor.

"Accordingly, the State Coordinator lauded the act of magnanimity of His Excellency during their orientation camp and pleaded with the host communities of the Corps Members to exhibit a high sense of hospitality to them, provide basic protections and accommodations as that will motivate them not to consider relocation or redeployment," the statement added.
