Teachers in Ogun State public secondary schools have expressed concerns over the numbers of deaths of their colleagues since January till date.

No fewer than 24 secondary schools teachers had died since January and the first two weeks of May, this year, across the state.

Also, one person each died in January and March.

The state chairman of the ASUSS, Akeem Lasisi, speaking to Rockcity FM News in Abeokuta, described the situation as worrisome.

The development, according to him is increasing the workload of the teachers in the state’s public secondary schools.

According to Lasisi, the death of the teachers and the non-replacement of teachers who had retired, or resign, is adversely affecting the productivity of the existing teachers.

Due to the shortage of teachers, the ASUSS chairman explained that teachers are now being compelled to teach subjects outside their course of study.

Lasisi, however, asked the teachers to give priority to their health status.
