The Kaduna State Government has commenced the screening of over 22,000 new teachers ahead of their deployment to public primary schools across the state.

This has put to rest the controversy generated from the sacking of over 21,000 unqualified teachers who failed a competency test in June last year.

Our correspondent who monitored the exercise, reports that the screening of the new teachers is going on simultaneously across the three senatorial zones in the state.

The Kaduna State Executive Council had approved the outcome of the teachers’ competency test and consequently directed immediate recruitment of new ones.

The action according to the State Universal Basic Education (SUBEB) is part of the state government’s effort to equip all schools with competent and qualified teachers in the bid to provide quality education and learning to pupils across the state.

So far, the applicants seem to be satisfied with the process and are hopeful of making it to the classrooms.

The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) had embarked on an indefinite strike early this month following the insistence by the state government go ahead with its plan to sack 21,780 primary school teachers said to have failed the primary four examinations conducted to test their competency.

The union later suspended the industrial action on grounds that the sacked teachers have been given a second opportunity to reapply for the job.
