Niger SUBEB dismisses 20 teachers for certificate forgery .

 Niger State Universal Basic Education Board has dismissed 20 teachers in Public Primary Schools for certificate forgery and abscondment from work.


Of the dismissed teachers, the board said, four are from Gbako Local Government, three each from Bida and Lapai, two each from Agaie, Katcha and Lavun and one each from Mashegu, Munya and Shiroro while one teacher was dismissed in Kontagora for dereliction of work.

A press release signed by the board’s Public Relations Officer, Idris Kolo, said the decision was taken at the management meeting in furtherance of the board’s determination to ensuring that only those with the requisite qualifications and zeal to work would be allowed into the teaching profession especially at the basic level of education in the state.

The statement cited the Chairman of the Board, Dr Isah Adamu, saying that the board has resolved to flush out all unqualified teachers in public primary schools as part of measures to restore the quality of teaching and learning at the basic level of education, noting that this is the first phase of those whose certificates have been verified by the institutions they claimed to have attended.
