Plateau State Govt. Fires Over 122 Primary School Teachers
122 primary school teachers in the state have been sacked by the Plateau state government.
According to sources, they have been fired for supposedly obtaining jobs with false credentials.
Prof. Mathew Sule, Chairman of the Plateau State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), made the declaration on Wednesday 14 October. Sule said they learned this during the screening program.
“In line with the directives by the TRCN that teachers without requisite qualifications should be disengaged, we conducted a series of screenings for our teachers.
“Of the over 15, 000 teachers in the 2,537 public primary schools in Plateau, we discovered that 122 presented fake certificates to us.
“We followed all due process, including visiting the schools they claimed they graduated from and found they did not attend those schools.”
