President Muhammadu Buhari has reappointed Prof Josiah Ajiboye as Registrar of the Teachers Registration Council (TRCN).
According to the new appointment Prof Ajiboye will serve for another five years.
He resumed duties on Tuesday with a pledge to pursue the implementation of policies that will enhance teachers welfare in the country.
Speaking after his resumption, the TRCN boss said his major focus will be on teachers professionalism and welfare to ensure that Nigerian teachers are well rewarded.
“We are not going to rest on our oars; we will double our efforts to make sure that we take TRCN to greater heights.

“Actually, the major focus this time around, will be on the welfare and teacher professionalism that we have been focusing; but more importantly, on teachers welfare.
“We left off at the point of addressing the issue of teachers welfare in Nigeria, which Mr President assented to. We are going to move further from that to make sure that Nigerian Teachers are placed very well and are highly rewarded,” he said.
According to Ajiboye, efforts will not be spared to ensure full implementation of approvals made by President Buhari for the welfare of Nigerian teachers, some which have begun already.
On the expectations of the Nigerian Union of Teachers, he said the union expects him to come and finish a full implementation of the welfare programmes approved by President Buhari.
He added that he will also focus on teachers professionalism, especially the issue of technology in driving teaching and learning in the country.
“The Nigerian teacher finds himself in a difficult situation with this pandemic and technology has now become a handy thing to make sure that we drive teaching as we want.
“So we’re going to make sure that the Nigerian teacher is well grounded in the use of technology to drive the education system.
“When teachers welfare is taken care of, they will not leave. The reason why teachers are leaving the profession is because they see better offers outside. And we are going to make sure, with what Mr President has approved, 65 years, is now being implemented,” he said.
He said some people who are not teachers are now pursuing post-graduate diploma in education to become teachers so that they can benefit from the welfare programme approved by the government.
“Instead of leaving, we will make sure that we attract more people to the profession by improving on the welfare of the Nigerian teacher and emphasising the importance of the welfare. Teachers first,” he added.
