FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH SERVICE DOCUMENTS - LASUBEB CHAIR TELLS NEW EMPLOYEES

by LASUBEB Publicity unit | November 24th 2020

The Executive Chairman of Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, LASUBEB, Hon. Wahab Alawiye-King has advised the 2000 newly recruited primary school teachers to familiarize themselves with all necessary public service documents that would aid them in the discharge of their duties effectively to the State Government.

At an induction ceremony organised for the newly recruited teachers at LASUBEB office in Maryland today, the Chairman underscored the indispensability of the Public Service Rules, Financial Regulations and some other service documents to the new employees, saying that the materials are important to the teachers to guide their conduct, utterances and interaction as government officials.

"Get yourself acquainted with the system, get a copy of the Public Service Rules, know your rights, limitations and responsibilities. Develop yourself from time to time and be certified by the relevant professional body so that you can be globally competitive," the LASUBEB Chairman pleaded.

The induction programme which was held simultaneously at five different centres, according to Alawiye-King, was important considering the different background of the new employees who are very fresh in the system and to avoid situations where they would ignorantly run foul of some laid down procedures in service.

He said "This induction programme is customary for every new employee. It is meant to give you a smooth entry into the teaching Service at the basic education level."

He congratulated the newly employed for scaling through the very rigorous selection processes and for being able to be employed among many other qualified applicants who also applied for the job.

He said he was happy to see very passionate individuals as applicants for the teaching job, stressing that the professional level which teaching has now assumed shows that qualified individuals could now be employed as teachers as against the practice in the past when people are usually persuaded to join the teaching Service.

Alawiye-King also counselled the newly employed teachers on financial intelligence and management of their resources to meet their needs especially now that they have fixed sources of regular income.

While making a presentation to the new employees, the Director-General of Lagos State Public Service Staff Development Centre, PSSDC, Dr. Senukon Ajose-Harrison challenged the teachers to think "outside the box", broaden their horizon and be abreast of what happens in other places across the world especially as teaching is concerned.

"Hone your skills to be at par with the demands of 21st-century teaching skills and let your goals be S.M.A.R.T. which is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely, " the DG stated.

To ensure continuous motivation of the workforce towards the enhancement of quality teaching and learning, the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board organized a get-together for school managers across the state on Friday, 13th May, 2022, at Olusosun Primary School, Oregun, Ikeja. At the ceremony, the Executive Chairman, Hon. Wahab Alawiye-King commended the administrators for their diligent contributions to the delivery of basic education services in the state. He noted that the essence of the gathering is to appreciate the educators for their conscientious dedication to pupils in Public Primary Schools and to charge them to remain committed. In his remarks at the gathering, he applauded Mr. Governor for the upward review of running cost to schools, adding that, the fund to be disbursed is to ensure a conducive learning environment for effective teaching and learning activities. He stated that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is committed to the welfare and well-being of teachers in the state, urging them not to rest on their oars but to continue to discharge their duties with a high sense of responsibility. Alawiye-King also appreciated the Commissioner of Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo for her tireless efforts in the realization of the giant strides in basic education. Comrade Hassan Akintoye, NUT Chairman Lagos State, commended the state government on the increase in the running cost, adding that the increase will boost effective service delivery in schools. Chairman AOPSHON (Association of Primary School Headteachers of Nigeria), Comrade Olukayode Edun appreciated the State government for the recognition given to the school managers. He thereafter pledged continuous selfless service to the pupils and the state in general on behalf of his colleagues.

As part of efforts to ensure smooth running of public primary schools, the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board met with Basic Education stakeholders today in anticipation and readiness for the disbursement of increased schools running cost to be released for better and effective utilisation. The upward review of running cost to schools was done at the behest of Mr. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu with the support of the Hon. Commissioner of Education. Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo to ensure the attainment of a conducive learning environment for effective teaching and learning activities. At the meeting which had in attendance Board Members, Directors, Education Secretaries, Executives of Association of Primary Schools Head Teachers of Nigeria (AOPSHON) and the Chairman of NUT, Hon. Wahab Alawiye-King- the Executive Chairman LASUBEB, stated that the gathering is premised on the desire to ensure judicious use of the increased running cost. He added that the welfare and well-being of the school is very paramount to Mr. Governor, noting that school managers should ensure effective utilization of the boosted fund released for schools maintenance. While addressing stakeholders on the collective effort made in realizing the review, he urged them to map out an action plan to ensure accountability of the funds expended on school management. Alawiye-King noted that the fund disbursed to the school is to ensure effective maintenance of the school and its environment. He noted that it is not the quantum that matters but the effective management of the limited resources. Comrade Hassan Akintoye, NUT Chairman appreciated Mr. Governor for the upward review in the running cost to schools. He stated that the increase will boost effective service delivery in schools, adding that the union will ensure that the fund is spent judiciously on its intended purpose.
