AWKA-Following the conclusion of the second phase of last Saturday’s Computer Based Test for the recruitment of teachers, the Anambra State Executive Council, ANSEC has approved 60% as the cut off mark.
The Commissioner for Information, Sir Paul Nwosu stated this in a Post-ANSEC release made available to the media.
Nwosu said that the name of successful candidates cannot be released immediately because the results will be segmented into Secondary school on one hand, and Primary School on the other.
The commissioner revealed that afterwards, the candidates will be segmented into sciences and arts for Secondary schools and into subjects for Primary Schools, stressing that government is determined to provide qualified teachers for our public schools.
He commended Ndi Anambra for volunteering timely information to security agencies in the efforts of the Governor Chukwuma Soludo-led administration to tackle insecurity.
Part of the release reads, “the success of our security agencies is attributable to the greater inflow of intelligence from Ndi Anambra who have taken advantage of the confidential security numbers provided by government”.
Commissioner Nwosu said, “convinced that these bandits are out to destroy their livelihood and take away their happiness, our people have come out of the cocoon to call the dedicated numbers to give precise information that have guided our security agencies”.
According to him, government is urging Ndi Anambra to continue to say something if they see something because the enemy is not yet completely chased away, stressing that as the light of the nation Anambra will not succumb to darkness.
The Commissioner also said that the traffic gridlock issue was also raised at the ANSEC meeting, pointing out that to ensure that the traffic gridlock on the Anambra side of the Niger Bridge is opened up, Government will direct security agencies to discontinue the stop-and-search on Anambra State side of the bridge.
He noted that in place of the check point, Government will place billboard that states: NO PARKING. NO STOPPING. KEEP MOVING, adding that such will make traveling in the state a pleasurable experience.
According to the Information Commissioner, “similar measure will be taken on the Amansea entry-point of the State, to tame the horrible traffic experience there”.
He revealed that park administrators have been appointed to motor parks in the state, stressing that their job is to manage the parks and not to collect money.
“Government reiterates once again that “Agboro” has been banned in Anambra state. The master plan of all the markets in Anambra State will be studied to determine which ones have been breached”.
Sir Paul said that where such cases are established, the structures will be removed, saying that the Commissioners for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, and Youth Development made major presentations to ANSEC, as government is poised to formulate policies to drive such activities in those Ministries.
