The Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASUSS), Ondo State, Thursday lamented insufficient teachers in secondary schools in the state.

The teachers, during the celebration of the 2017 World Teachers Day, tasked the government to resolve the challenges facing the education sector in the state.

The state chairman of ASUSS, Mr. Dayo Adebiyi, who spoke during the celebration in Akure, the Ondo State capital, said the education sector in the state needed much attention of the government.

Adebiyi appealed to the current administration in the state to find solution to the problem of insufficient teachers in secondary schools, noting that the security of lives of teachers and students should also be important to the government.

“The level of vacancies in the public secondary schools in Ondo State is too acute and calls for urgent attention of the government to take immediate remedial action. ASUSS is calling on all her members to rise up to the challenge of tackling the terrible vermin threatening to destroy the education in the state through indolence and examination malpractices in our education system,” he said.
