The Federal Government on Friday affirmed that all unqualified teachers would be flushed out of Nigerian classrooms by December 31, 2019.
The Registrar of the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) Professor Olusegun Ajiboye gave the order 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, Professor Ajiboye reiterated that any teacher found wanting in the code of practice would 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
