The Katsina State Gov­ern­ment has com­menced the re­cruit­ment of 5,000 pri­mary school teach­ers into the state civil ser­vice un­der its S-Power pro­gramme.

The ex­er­cise, which is un­der the chair­man­ship of the Sec­re­tary to Katsina State Gov­ern­ment, Mustapha Muham­mad Inuwa, is be­ing con­ducted by 12 cen­tres es­tab­lished across the 34 lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas of the state.

Ad­dress­ing the ap­pli­cants yes­ter­day at Dutsin-Ma, Faskari, Mu­sawa, Malum­fashi, Fun­tua and Safana screen­ing cen­tres, Inuwa said all the ap­pli­cants would be treated equally ir­re­spec­tive of tribal, re­li­gion and po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tions.

“The S-Power pro­gramme was in­tro­duced by Gov­er­nor Aminu Bello Masari-led ad­min­is­tra­tion to re­cruit 5,000 qual­i­fied pri­mary school teach­ers across the state.

“S-Power pro­gramme would only re­cruit on merit. The screen­ing ex­er­cise which be­gins to­day at var­i­ous cen­tres in the state would last for three days”, he said.

The S-power com­mit­tee chair­man, how­ever warned that any ap­pli­cant re­cruited un­der the pro­gramme would be grossly mon­i­tored to en­sure he or she do the work be­fore they get paid.

“For those who might not be ab­sorbed at the end of the ex­er­cise, I urge you to be pa­tient be­cause gov­ern­ment is plan­ning for an­other pack­age that would take care of you”, Inuwa added.
