Again El-Rufai sacks 4,562 newly-recruited teachers

The Kaduna State Government has sacked 4,562 newly-recruited teachers a few weeks after they were issued with employment letters to replace those sacked for failing a competency test.

This development was announced by the state Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Ja’afaru Sani, at a press briefing on Wednesday.

He said the reason for the dismissal of the teachers was because they found their ways into the service of state government through dubious means.

The state government had sacked 22,000 teachers that failed competency test based on questions meant for primary four pupils few months ago.

It had announced that it would replace them with competent teachers, based on a competitive recruitment exercise.

But at the end of the exercise, some of the teachers could not correctly write acceptance letters, forcing the state government to organise another screening for all the newly-recruited teachers.

Sani said, “At the end, 4,562 incompetent ones, believed to have found their way into the final list illegally, were fished out, leaving 11,335 competent ones.

“The 11,335 newly-recruited teachers, predominantly degree holders, including a few with Master’s degrees, have already been deployed to over 4,000 primary schools.

“This was after they had undergone vigorous induction training, along with the remaining old teachers, to equip them with modern teaching techniques and effective classroom management.

“We are hoping that between now and next month ending, we will be concluding the recruitment process of the balance of 13,665 teachers.

“We want to equip our students with the information and communication technology skills to enable them compete favourably in the current technology-driven world.”
