NLC slams El-Rufai for saying 21,780 Kaduna teachers fail primary four exams

- The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) Kaduna chapter has spoken on the recent statement made by Governor Nasir El-Rufai about some teachers' performances in the state

- Adamu Ango, chairman of the state chapter of the NLC, said El-Rufai's statement is just a cheap media propaganda

- He, however, said the governor's claim over the teachers’ poor exam performances is not true

The Nigerian Labour Congress Kaduna chapter has condemned Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s recent disclosure of about 21,780 out of 33,000 teachers failing the primary four test in the state.

Premium Times reports that Adamu Ango, chairman of the state chapter of the NLC, said El-Rufai's disclosure about the teachers' performances was not true.

Ango, however, challenged the state government to make public the comprehensive results of the said test alongside the international standard of teachers competency examination criteria.

He said: ''This is the third test conducted on teachers. Where are the rest of the results? What are the criteria, who are the bodies that are supposed to conduct these exams? What is the agreed internationally accepted pass marks and the unconcluded verification exercise?

''Or can the government organise examinations for medical doctors or lawyers? You cannot just come and set examinations and call it ‘primary four’ exam when we know it is not for primary four.

''This is just a cheap media propaganda. There is also more of politics in this examination than even the standard they are talking about. They just want to give a dog a bad name to hang it.

''What the government is saying about teachers in the state is not correct. By tomorrow, we, together with the Nigeria Union of Teachers, shall ensure that the correct results are available to the public to judge.''

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the state governor said about 21,780 teachers failed the primary four test administered to test their competence by the state government.
