Kaduna government sacks 65 ‘illegally recruited teachers’

The Kaduna State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) on Friday confirmed the sack of 65 primary school teachers, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

They were allegedly recruited illegally in Sanga Local Government Area of the state.

SUBEB’s Auditor, Tandat Katuma, who served as the secretary of the investigation committee, confirmed the development to NAN in Kaduna.

The council’s chairman, Charles Danladi, had on Wednesday announced the sack of the teachers to journalists in Gwantu, the council headquarters.

Mr Danladi alleged that the anomaly was detected through the over-bloated wage bill of the teachers, which kept increasing every month without new employment.

To this effect, an alarm was raised.

He said Mr Danladi raised the alarm during the state’s Joint Account Committee Meeting, being chaired by the deputy governor and that SUBEB was asked to investigate the allegation.

“After our investigation, we confirmed that 65 teachers were illegally recruited in the area.

“Their appointments have been terminated.
