The plan to recruit about 2,000 teachers by the Enugu State Government to fill the vacancies in its primary education system has suffered a setback following the cancellation of the exercise by the state House of Assembly.

The state House of Assembly had summoned the Chairman of the Enugu State Universal Basic Education Board (ENSUBEB), Chief Ikeji Asogwa, and the Permanent Secretary, Mrs Rose Chiama, to appear before it on Thursday to explain why the recruitment exercise should not be cancelled following the outcry that trailed it.
It turned out that the lawmakers were not satisfied with the answers the Chairman of ENSUBEB gave on how the exercise went and the criteria that were followed in the recruitment   process.
The lawmakers, who called for the cancellation of the exercise that took place recently, said that the exercise was not conducted in a normal process, which led to complaints from various relevant stakeholders.
The House reached the conclusion following the position of the ENSUBEB Permanent Secretary, Mrs Chiama, that she knew nothing about the exercise and that even the board was not in the know, adding that they were not carried along.
The lawmakers were not happy that the exercise, where 21,000 applied, took place just within a week to conclude both examination and oral interview for those shortlisted.
The speaker of the House, Honourable Edward Ubosi, called for the cancellation of the exercise ordered for a fresh exercise. (Nigerian Tribune)
