The Nasarawa State Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has complied with the directive of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly to issue letters of appointment to engaged teachers with genuine certificates on Primary Education Studies (PES).
In a statement released by Pastor Benjamin Chindo Baka the Secretary of the commission on behalf of the Executive Chairman, the commission stated that the issues of the affected teachers had been resolved, inviting them to come for their appointment letters.
The affected teachers were given different dates according to senatorial zones as follows; those under the western zone are to go for their letters of appointment on the 6th of January 2020 while those from the northern zone are scheduled for the following day (7th) and those from the southern zone on the 8th of January.
The statement however came with a warning that those without genuine documents, those with ECCE or with pure PES but without teaching subjects need not to come.
The affected teachers are to be there in person and with originals as well as photocopies of their documents along with two passport photographs.
The directive came during a meeting between the House Committee on Education, officials of the State Ministry of Education and those of the Teachers Service Commission which held on Monday (30/12/2019). The Teachers Service Commission had disqualified 161 teachers engaged with PES certificate because according to them, they are not qualified to teach in secondary School.
