Nigeria Labour Congress President, Ayuba
Wabba on Wednesday led thousands of
teachers in Kaduna to protest the sacking of
21,870 primary schoolteachers.
Why they were sacked:
The Kaduna State government had organised
a competency test for 33,000 primary school
teachers in the state.
25,000 of the teachers had flunked the
primary four test administered to them.
After threats that they may lose their jobs,
the teachers resulted to fasting and prayers.
The education board in the state recently
pasted names of 11,220 teachers
considered qualified to teach in public
primary schools.
What is happening:
On Wednesday, the NLC and the Nigerian Union of
Teachers led a protest against the teachers’ sack.
Chairman of the NUT, Mr. Audu Amba issued a two-
week ultimatum to the government to rescind the
decision to sack 25,000 workers.
While addressing the workers, Wabba said the
competency test was a plot to sack teachers.
He said the only recognised professional body to test
teachers’ competence is the Teachers Registration
Council of Nigeria.
