The Federal Government has directed that all unqualified teachers should be flushed out of schools by December 31st, Professor Segun Ajiboye, Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), said.
Ajiboye stated this in Ibadan at the induction of no fewer than 200 education graduates of the University of Ibadan.
According to him, quacks teaching Nigerian children will be thrown out and replaced by qualified and certificated education graduates to mold sound future leaders for the country.
The registrar said that teachers must stand shoulder to shoulder with other professional groups in the knowledge-driven economy.
Administering the Oath of Practice on the inductees, Ajiboye reiterated that any teacher found wanting in the code of practice would be sanctioned. He also said that Nigerian teachers now had a separate and unique career path with the recent approval of Teachers’ Career Path by the National Council on Education.
