Bauchi state teachers under the aegis of the ‘League of professional teachers in Nigeria’ (LOPTIN) have urged the state governor Bala Mohammed to confirm Malam Suleiman Adamu Madara as substantive permanent secretary of the state ministry of education.
Spokesperson Bauchi state chapter of the league Shehu Hassan Jarawa made the call in a press release issued to journalists.
According to him, Madara is an experienced teacher who rose from class room through the ranks in the ministry saying he is one of the most senior civil servants in the state.
Jarawa said every civil servant who reaches the apex of his career hopes to retire as a permanent secretary.
“The Acting Permanent Secretary of the Bauchi state ministry of education, MALAM SULEIMAN ADAMU MADARA, a career teacher with a long time teaching experience as a classroom teacher, with a good and enviable credentials, track records, experience, pedigree deserves to be rewarded by being confirmed as substantive permanent secretary.
“Malam Madara has so many good-wills among the staff of the ministry, school teachers and of course, the students of the state.
“Will the good work of Malam Madara be reciprocated by the way of confirming him as a full time permanent secretary by the Bauchi state governor?
“Or will the good work, sincerity, accountability and transparency of the yet to be confirmed permanent be in vain? The league said.
