The Bayelsa State Government is actively developing plans to prioritize the teaching and learning of Ijaw, French, and Chinese languages, along with emphasizing science and mathematics in public schools.
The goal is to adequately prepare and equip students to seize career opportunities in these subjects, considering the significant economic influence of China in global trade and commerce. Deputy Governor Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo shared this initiative during a courtesy visit by the state chapter of the Association of Professional Women Engineers of Nigeria.
While responding to issues raised by APWEN, Ewhrudjakpo said, “I am happy about the programme you are introducing. For us, we have made it compulsory; we are pursuing STEM because we believe that with that, the negative impression of Bayelsa State would change sooner or later.
“We will really be available for anything you want us to do from the government angle. As I told you earlier, in our teachers’ recruitment we deliberately laid emphasis on science, ICT and mathematics.
“We are recruiting more teachers in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, agricultural science and computer science. The other subjects we are placing priority on are Chinese, French and Ijaw languages.”
