Edo State Government said it has released the promotion of about 1,130 teachers and non teaching staff at Junior Secondary Schools across the state.
The Executive Chairman of SUBEB, Prince Stephen Alao, who disclosed this at a press briefing on Friday, said the promotion letters were already signed and ready for collection at the various Local Government Education Authority.
Alao expressed hope that the promotion would be an impetus for the teachers to give more in their collective responsibility of educating the children.
He thanked the teachers for their patience while the process of releasing the promotion lasted.
The SUBEB boss said over 120 contracts covering the 192 wards in the state have been awarded since the new board was constituted.
He stated that the contracts included construction of new blocks of classrooms, reconstruction and renovation of existing classroom blocks and supply of furniture to the schools.
He said contractors were warned against doing shoddy jobs in the state.
