Just today the state governor released the scripts of teachers of his state showing their performance in the just conducted competency test. These were released on the state governor’s official Twitter account (@GovKaduna).
From report, the Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai released some of the scripts out of a total of 21,780 primary school teachers participated in the state’s competency test.
This was made public by the governor in order to vindicate the government’s decision to sack the teachers. Subjects covered on the competency exam included Mathematics, English Language, Social Studies and Primary Science. The alarming thing was there were filled with lots of spelling errors, lack of comprehension, and unintelligible construction of sentences.
Nasir El-Rufai was a bit considerate as he did not make public the names of the teachers though other personal details where uncovered, but his decision to dismiss these number of teachers is not a welcomed decision; to the teachers and the masses. There should be another lighter punishment for these teachers who are parents and have responsibilities to attend to.
After issuing a one-month notice to the failed teachers to prepare for disengagement from service, the Kaduna State Executive Council has approved the immediate commencement of the process of recruiting 25,000 new primary school teachers.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for a written test on November 26 and successful candidates will be interviewed on January 8, 2018, before temporary appointment letters will be issued to successful applicants to commence work on January 25.
