Kwara State Government Sacks 2,414 Teachers

Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has terminated the employment of 2,414 teachers employed by the state universal basic education board (KWSUBEB).

In a statement by the state ministry of Education, the government said the action was taken because the teachers were employed illegally at the end of the administration of a former governor, AbdulFatah Ahmed,

The government said: “A total number of 2,414 SUBEB teachers were engaged in the twilight of the past administration. They are otherwise called sunset workers.

“This figure is a violent contravention of the executive approval by former Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed who had authorised the employment of 1,100 qualified teachers to take English Language, Mathematics, and Science subjects only.”

The ministry of education explained that it also discovered that the majority of the teachers were not qualified to teach because they lacked the required teaching certificates.

The government stated that the discovery prompted it to start the employment processes afresh in 2021.

The ministry said: “The government will open a new application portal for all the 2,414 and any other eligible persons to apply for SUBEB teaching jobs in relevant subjects to be advertised.

This effectively nullifies the controversial employment process of 2018/2019.

“This new process will be largely technology-driven, and needs-based, while every applicant will go through rigorous screenings.’’
