In December 2021, the Board also sacked 233 teachers over alleged possession of fake certificates. jamb results

“Following the state government’s resolution for continued assessment of teachers to ensure better delivery of learning outcomes for pupils, KADSUBEB conducted another competency test for the teachers in December 2021.

“The services of teachers who scored below 40 per cent are no longer required and their appointments have been terminated from the Public Service for their poor performances.

“Teachers who scored 75 per cent and above were recognised as those who passed the test and qualified for attending courses in leadership and school management,” she said.

BUT reacting, Mr. Ibrahim Dalhatu, State Chairman, NUT, dismissed the competency test and sacking of the affected teachers as “illegal”.

Dalhatu said the union had secured a court order restraining the Board from conducting the test, adding that it went ahead without recourse to the rule of law.

He recalled that the union had asked the teachers not to write the examination after learning that the plan was to sack them.

He said: “We warned that any teacher who participates in the illegal examination would not be protected by the union if victimised, but some of the teachers went ahead to write the examination out of fear.

“We are not against the conduct of the competency test if due process is followed. But it should not be used as the basis for sacking teachers.

“The competency test should be used to determine teachers’ capacity gap and tailor specific training programmes to improve their capacities.”
