”We tested our 33,000 primary school teachers, we gave them primary four examinations and required they must get at least 75 percent but I am sad to announce that 66 percent of them failed to get the requirements.

The hiring of teachers in the past was politicized and we intend to change that by bringing in young and qualified primary school teachers to restore the dignity of education in the state.”

He added that teachers would be redeployed across the state to balance the issue of teacher-pupil ratio.

”We have a challenge with the teacher-pupil ratio in the urban schools; there is concentration of teachers that are not needed.

In some local government areas, it’s a teacher-pupil ratio of 1-9 while in some places it’s 1-100,” he said.

In a bid to improve the education sector, El-Rufai said the school directors decided to enroll their children in public schools starting from this academic session.

Also, the World Bank representative, Dr. Kunle Adekola, expressed appreciation to the state government for stepping up to improve quality education in the state.

“This state has demonstrated and supported us to achieve our goals,” he said.

According to him, the Bank would invest N30 million in Rigasa Primary School, which has a population of about 22,000 pupils, as part of its support for the state.

This is a big shame! If they can’t answer those questions correctly, so what have they been teaching the kids?
