As part of incentives to boost education, the Kaduna State Government says it would increase upward, the remuneration of teachers in its primary and secondary schools.


Commissioner for Education, Ja’afaru Sani, who disclosed this at a briefing in Kaduna noted, that teachers in rural areas in particular would be targeted for special attention. 

According to the commissioner, the processes of recruiting 25,000 teachers to replace those sacked for failing competency test had reached an advanced stage.

He dismissed the assertion by the state council of the Nigerian Union of Teachers, that the state government had agreed to lower the pass mark from 75% to 60% as one of the reasons for the suspension of its indefinite strike, insisting that no such concession was given.

Sani said the state’s Universal Basic Education Board would ensure that the first batch of new teachers to be recruited will be available for deployment to schools next month.
