He announced that the State Government has planned to employ 3,979 teachers out of which 3,100 have passed the qualifying test, assuring that the exercise will be continuous.

In a bid to ensure that every child goes to school in the state, Kogi Education Law has been enacted to guide and regulate the system, the Commissioner said.

“Any school-age child seen hawking or roaming the streets would be arrested and the parents will be prosecuted at the appropriate court for violating the education law of the state.

Chairman Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Kogi state Council, Comrade Adeiza Momojimoh, commended the state government for the wonderful achievement in the education sector.

He however noted with dissatisfaction, the government’s inability to carry along the press, which he said has kept the citizens in the dark.
