- All the teachers failed an examination test meant for their primary pupils
- More secondary school teachers are to join the numbers in a few weeks
A whopping number of teachers in Northern Nigeria have been sent home for failing to pass examination test meant for their primary school pupils.
According to authorities in Nigeria’s Kaduna State, over 20,000 teachers have been affected in the exercise.
A report put up by BBC indicates that the state government is embarking on a massive exercise to mop up Nigeria’s educational system in the Kaduna State.
The report explained that hiring of teachers in the State has always been politicised; thereby churning out half-baked students.
A government official who spoke to BBC in an interview hinted that there will be another unannounced test for secondary school teachers in few weeks to ‘clean’ the educational system.
The Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai disclosed that qualified teachers would be employed soon to replace the over 20,000 affected ones in the exercise.
