The Scripts Of The Primary 4 Test Given To Teachers In Kaduna (SEE PICTURES)

Share This

Last week, the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai announced the sacking of over 21,000 primary school teachers who failed the competency test given by the state government. 

In announcing the move last weekend, SUBEB Chairman, Nasir Umar said of the 33,000 that took the exams, 21,780 failed the score the required 75% benchmark. 

He also made known that: "We started training of those teachers. Unfortunately, we realised that no matter how much we put into the training and monitoring, it will not have a positive result because there was a wide gap between the teachers and the pupils - that was one of the reasons why we conducted the test." 

The move has since turned into a political warfar that not only cuts across political divide, but also  pits the State Government against the NUT and even the labour unions and has seen social media taking sides. The affected teachers in the state took to the streets in protests, and then later asked their students to do the same for them. It should remind a lot of political observers of the Kayode Fayemi fiasco in Ekiti when he also tried to do the same thing. The move cost Fayemi his second term. 

Seeing the backlash his move generated, the Governor has posted some of the scripts of the teachers, and they are sad, excruciatingly so. 

Below are some of the scripts posted online: 

Shocking? You can deduce your opinions from the above scripts whether they deserve the sack or not.
