The Federal Government of Nigeria has directed that all unqualified teachers should be flushed out of Nigeria classrooms by December 31, 2019.
Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Professor Segun Ajiboye, stated this while inducting over 200 education graduates of the University of Ibadan.
According to him, the quacks teaching Nigerian children would be thrown out and replaced by qualified and certificated Education graduates to mould sound future leaders for the country.
The Registrar noted that teachers must stand shoulder to shoulder with other professional groups in the knowledge driven economy.
While administering the oath of practice on the inductees, Ajiboye reiterated that any teacher found wanting in the code of practice will be sanctioned.
He also said that Nigerian teachers now have a separate and unique career path with the recent approval of Teachers’ Career Path by the National Council on Education
