The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN is to begin the process of weeding out of the system unqualified teachers in public and private primary and secondary schools in the country from this month
The Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, Professor Josiah Ajiboye, disclosed this in a chat with newsmen.
Ajiboye, who said the Council had got the data of teachers in public and private primary and secondary schools nationwide, said the enforcement would start simultaneously across the 36 states of the federation before the end of January.
Though he did not specify the aggregate figures of teachers involved, no fewer than 400,000 teachers, especially in private primary and secondary schools may be affected.
Ajiboye said the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, had helped in collating figures of teachers in the schools concerned and that the Council would not waste time in swinging into action.
