Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State revealed that his administration is working with private providers to guarantee 24 hours electricity in major cities across the state over the next 30 months.
Soludo said this on Friday at the event of appointment letters presentation to the newly recruited five thousand teachers in the State.
While reeling out some of his achievements as the executive governor of Anambra state, he said, “In barely eight months in office, we have been vigorously and simultaneously implementing the five pillars of our people’s manifesto. We are fighting criminals and touts head on and they are on the run, security law and order are getting better by the day.”
“Anambra is now a construction site with 230 kilometres of quality and strategic road constructions ongoing together with bridges and flyovers; we have launched a regenerative agricultural revolution as well as reinventing the palm oil and coconut economy.”
“Four industrial parks are being prepared and designed. We are working in partnership with private providers to guarantee 24 hours electricity in our major cities over the next 30 months. Street lights powered by solar are now replacing old technologies.”
According to the governor, the recruitment of new 5000 teachers for primary and secondary schools will bring an end to the era of schools without quality teachers.
He added that with additional 2,500 teachers each in primary and secondary schools, the state will henceforth continue to meet the best possible teacher-student ratios.
Soludo, however, assured the teachers that as a fellow teacher, the government will prioritise teachers and ensure they are motivated and empowered, adding that all the tools they need to work with will be provided.
The 5000 new teachers are employed under the Anambra State Universal Basic Education Board and the Post Primary School Service Commission.
