Teachers in Ondo State who just received January, 2022 salaries on the 7th of June have been put on notice that, effective from July 2022, it will be mandatory to have a master’s degree in education or a six months training at Public Service Training Institute, Ilara-Mokin to qualify for promotion.

For those without M.Ed, the six months training comes with a sum of N130,000 financial requirement.

For this category of workers who are already in a very bad shape, what a very ingenious way of creating hardship for the people. In what other ways can a government fail the people?

Training and re-training are key requirements for every organization desirous of efficiency and growth. But there are always safety nets and welfare packages that make such training sought after. This one being proposed by Akeredolu is ill-timed and the height of insensitivity to the plight of the people.
