Breaking: State Govt Reinstates 1,288 Sacked Teachers

The Kaduna State Government has approved the reinstatement of 1,288 public primary school teachers sacked in June 2022 after the conduct of competency test.

Hauwa Mohammed, the Public Relation Officer, State Universal Basic Education Board, Kaduna SUBEB, made this known in a statement issued in Kaduna on Wednesday 5th April 2023.

Mrs Mohammed explained that 1,266 were affected by the competency test, while 22 others were removed from the government payroll for alleged unproven claims.

Recall that the board had in June 2022 sacked 2,357 primary school teachers over competency test.

The board had explained that of the figure, 2,192 teachers were dismissed for their failure to sit for the test, while 165 teachers were sacked for poor performance.

Some of the affected teachers, however, complained that they wrote the examination and passed, but were still sacked, while others claimed to be sick at the time of the test and provided proof.

Some of the affected workers claimed to have been kidnapped at the time; while some claimed to be on suspension due to verification of their certificates, while others claimed to be central administration staff, and as such, were exempted from writing the test.

“Having examined and verified their complaints, the state government approved the reinstatement of 392 teachers, who wrote and passed the test, and 515 central administration staff that were officially exempted from the test.

“Others are: 298 teachers, who were verified to be sick at the time of the test, as well as 61 teachers that were kidnapped or involved in accidents verified by their respective Education Secretaries.

“Also, 22 teachers, who were permanently removed from the payroll for unsubstantiated claims were equally reinstated, amounting to a total of 1,288 reinstated workers.

The spokesperson therefore advised all affected teachers to collect their reinstatement letters from their respective Education Secretaries immediately.
