Panic as Plateau state government sacks over 120 teachers

Over 120 primary school teachers have been sacked by the Plateau state government.

According to reports, they were fired for allegedly securing employment with fake certificates. 

The Chairman of Plateau State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Prof. Mathew Sule made the announcement on Wednesday October 14. Sule said they uncovered this during a screening programme.

He said; 

 “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.”
