Nasir El-Rufai the state governor of Kaduna State has disclosed that 21,780 out of 33,000 teachers failed the primary four exams they set out to test their knowledge and competence recently. He said;
“We tested our 33,000 primary school teachers, we gave them primary four examinations and required they must get at least 75 percent but I am sad to announce that 66 percent of them failed to get the requirements. The hiring of teachers in the past was politicized and we intend to change that by bringing in young and qualified primary school teachers to restore the dignity of education in the state.' he told a World Bank’s delegation in Kaduna on Monday.
