In a recent development, Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State has given the green light for the recruitment of primary school teachers, clerical officers, and watchmen in 22 local government council areas within the state.

Addressing the media at the conclusion of the State Joint Account Allocation Committee (JAAC) meeting in Asaba on Friday, Hon. Victor Ebonka, Chairman of the state chapter of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), announced the approval. He mentioned that the number of employees to be hired will vary across councils, considering the retired staff from each local government.

According to Ebonka, “Today’s JAAC meeting witnessed Governor Sheriff Oborevwori granting approval for 22 out of the 25 Local Government Councils to immediately recruit primary school teachers within their respective areas. The actual number of teachers hired will differ from council to council, depending on their specific requirements and available resources.”

Regarding the N40 billion facility allocated for pension payments of primary school teachers and local government retirees, Ebonka provided reassurance, saying, “All necessary steps and processes have been completed, including the payment of the one percent management fee. We anticipate accessing the funds within the next month, and our commitment remains to directly disburse the funds to the pensioners.”

In a bid to ensure transparency and accuracy, Ebonka shared, “We have engaged forensic experts who are currently conducting audits on the accounts to guarantee that the rightful amounts are paid to the pensioners.”

The allocation for July is higher compared to previous years, but it is not an unprecedented amount.”
