• The Zamfara State Government has concluded plans to employ 1,000 teachers this year to address the problem of inadequate teachers in primary schools.

    Yari, who was represented by his deputy, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala, said that the mass recruitment would enhance teaching and learning in state schools.

    According to him, the recruitment would also create employment opportunities for unemployed graduates in the state.

    On the 2017 Workers Day, Yari said the celebration was timely as negotiations between state government and labour over workers’ rights had been concluded.

    “The state government will pay all workers’ outstanding promotion and annual increment in this month of May.

    “The state government has also reached agreement with the labour to pay N100 million monthly for payment of gratuities to retired civil servants.

    “We have agreed to form a committee that will review the issue of pension to ensure attainment of the minimum wage on pensions,” he said.

    Yari commended the labour union in the state for their cooperation and understanding in addressing the demand of workers in the state. (NAN)
