Kaduna State Universal Basic Education Board, (KADSUBEB) has said 233 public school teachers will be sacked for presenting fake certificates during a verification exercise conducted earlier this year.
At a press conference in Kaduna, Chairman of the Kaduna SUBEB, Tijjani Abdullahi, said the Board will also report the teachers found wanting to the Ministry of Justice for prosecution over forgery.
He noted the Board had launched a certificate verification exercise in April 2021 as part of its responsibility to ensure that teachers in the state have the requisite credentials that constitute the basic qualifications for employment as teachers.
He added so far, “451 certificates were verified by the institutions that awarded them and results from nine of the 13 institutions contacted revealed that 233 teachers presented fake certificates.
“This represents 51% of the 451 certificates on which responses have been received.
