Oluwarotimi Akeredolu the governor of Ondo State has directed all vice-principals of secondary schools and assistant headteachers in primary schools in the state to go back to the classroom and start teaching students.
The governor gave this directive through the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mrs Lola Amuda to some school principals in Akure.
It was gathered that the instruction was given following the apparent shortage of teachers in public schools in the state.
Amuda quoted the governor as saying that: “Pending the time when the state would address the shortage of teachers in public schools, all vice principals must return to classes.”
While stating that some vice principals had already taken up the challenge, he urged others to comply with Akeredolu’s directive with immediate effect.
Reacting to this, some principals advised the education ministry to translate the directive to a circular for all schools so as to avoid confusion that might arise between the principals and their vice principals.
