FG Insists on Disengaging All Unqualified Teachers Before December 31


The Federal Government has said its December 31, 2019 deadline to weed the nation’s classrooms of unqualified teachers remains sacrosanct.

The government said at the end of the deadline which comes into effect in three weeks time, teachers without the requisite teaching qualifications will be disengaged from services. It, however, did not give the number of teachers that would be affected.

Also, teachers without the licence of the Teachers Registration Council, TRCN, will not be henceforth employed in any teachers’ recruitment exercise embarked upon by the government.

The government emphasised this as over 77,000 teachers sat for Professional Qualifying Examination, across the country on Saturday, in a desperate bid to scale the hurdle associated with not possessing requisite qualification.

The Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Education, Arc. Sonny Echono, speaking to newsmen shortly after monitoring the examination alongside the Registrar of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN, Prof. Josiah Ajiboye insisted that the December 31, 2019 deadline to disengage unqualified teachers in the country remained sacrosanct.

He, however, said the disengaged teachers would have opportunities of still sitting for the examination with a view to getting certification and present themselves for re-engagement as according to him, the exercise would be a continuous one.
