70% South-West private schoolteachers unqualified – TRCN



The regulatory body for teaching in Nigeria, the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria claimed that 70 per cent of private school teachers in Southwest states are unqualified.

The South-west states in Nigeria are Lagos, Osun, Ogun, Ondo, Oyo and Ekiti.

The council’s registrar, Prof. Josiah Ajiboye who noted that the culprits were not teachers, but cheaters, added that they don’t only cheat the pupils/students but the system in its entirety.

Speaking on Thursday in Abuja at the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Council and INSTILL Education, Ajiboye revealed that contrary to several speculations about the Southwest and its teachers of private schools, 70 per cent had been discovered not qualified.

Lamenting that 70 per cent of the unqualified teachers lacked the prerequisites to be registered by the Council, the TRCN boss stated that a large number of teachers in Nigeria had never been exposed to training and had been using outdated equipment for illustration.

“They are not registrable with the TRCN. So that is to tell you that there is a big gap. So you cannot call them teachers but cheaters.

So we are looking into the future to fill up that gap like it’s done in South Africa.”

He said signing the MoU was aimed at equipping Nigerian teachers with 21st-century skills that would ultimately support teacher professional development and learning outcomes in Nigeria and Africa in general.
