The Plateau state government has reportedly sacked about 122 primary school teachers who were found culpable of securing employment with fake certificates.
This was announced by the Chairman of Plateau State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Prof. Mathew Sule, on Wednesday, October 14. Sule said they uncovered the fake certificates during a screening program.
According to Sule, over 15, 000 teachers in the 2,537 public primary schools in the state were screened, and 122 were discovered to have presented fake certificates. The SUBEB board took the decision to disengage, the teachers after visiting the schools they claimed they graduated from and found they did not attend those schools.
