Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has disclosed that secondary school teachers across the state will be subjected to a competency test like the one primary school teachers did last year.
The governor made this disclosure on the state’s official Twitter account (@GovKaduna) on Sunday, March 18, 2018, explaining that his administration will not relent in its bid to bring quality education to the state.
He said, “We are doing our best to restore the integrity of the teaching profession. We have finished tests for primary school teachers and we are going to administer competency tests for secondary school teachers.”
The governor also revealed that urban teachers will be paid 27.5% higher than average civil servants while rural teachers will be paid 32.5% higher to attract the best to the sector.
