NLC says retirees, dead persons listed on Kaduna Teachers’ Competence Test
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said the Kaduna state government listed retirees and dead persons as part of those who failed the competence test.
Ayuba Wabba, who is the NLC president made this known on Tuesday in a meeting with the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the NLC.
He added that it was a fraudulent act for the state government to meddle in such affairs, stressing that the body which that was supposed to check the competency of teachers is the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN).
“I was credibly informed that the people who were screened, none of those that are from NCE and degree holders have actually been placed on the screen or public domain.
“We are for reforms that are positive and people can follow, particularly unions in the education sector. Therefore, any union that does not carry them along, certainly they are not transparent and we are not going to support such process.
“Teaching is a profession and the professional body which is supposed to check the competency of teachers is the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN). Anywhere there is lack of respect of rule of law, it is survival of the fittest and NEC has to look at it,” Wabba lamented.
