More than 20,000 applications have been submitted to the Nasarawa State Universal Basic Education Board (NSUBEB) for the teaching posts that were recently posted in the state’s public primary schools.

Mr. Joseph Mainasara, a permanent board member, disclosed the information on Monday during the current screening process in Wamba.

He said that the state government will only hire 4,700 of the qualified applicants.

He said that those who make it through the first round of screening will take a written exam to guarantee that only eligible applicants are hired.

In the meantime, state public school teachers had been complaining about inadequate welfare benefits and serious infrastructure problems that the state needed to address if it wanted to raise the standard of education in the state.
