Akwa-Ibom State Sacks 5,000 Teachers

Governor Udom Emmanuel has sacked at least five thousand teachers in Akwa Ibom. The governor cites lapses in their recruitment processes as the reason for their sack.  Governor Udom said that fake appointment letters were issued to the teachers who were not qualified.

According to the governor, a syndicate which had since been apprehended was involved in printing fake letters of appointment and fake school certificates at outrageous amounts ranging from 150,000 to 200,000 naira.

However, the governor assured affected persons who have the necessary qualifications of being considered at the commencement of fresh recruitment. He said when the aptitude test is being conducted that affected persons need not re-apply, but walk into the venue of the exercise with that appointment letter and justify that  he/she is qualified to teach.
