NUT Kaduna: 'Those Who Marked Kaduna Tests Are Illiterates'

The National Union Of Teachers Kaduna chapter has stated that those who marked the test scripts of the recently conducted Tests for teachers in Kaduna are illiterates.

The test results led to controversy between the Kaduna State Government and the NUT Kaduna over the planned sack of about 21,780 teachers in the state.

The NUT also stated that those who wrote the Tests were carpenters and office messengers that were converted to teachers forcefully when Nasir El-Rufai became Governor.

They said
'We were disturbed when we saw those scripts.
This was why we investigated. You may recall
that el-Rufa’i has directed the conversion of
all redundant staff in the local education
authorities to teachers. Among those
converted were messengers, carpenters,
labourers, security personnel among others.
We were made to write the exam in question
with those people. Our investigation revealed
that candidate number EKUB 0059 displayed
by el-Rufa’i was a carpenter in Kubau local
government before he was forcefully taken to
class. Candidate number EKUB 2839 was a
messenger in the same local government. If
you remember all attempts to draw the
attention of the government on the
implication of their action fell on deaf ears.
Again, those that marked this exam are the
illiterates, because even these candidates
with their limited knowledge have answered
some of the questions correctly but they were
marked wrong.”

Last week, the governor released photos of some scripts of the teachers who failed the Primary 4 exam after calls by the NUT to abort the planned sack.
