836 Teachers Fired In Edo State

A total of 836 teachers have been sacked by the Edo State Government following a verification exercise carried out by the department of Information and Communication Technology.

The affected teachers learnt of the sack when they discovered that their names were missing from the December salary voucher.

Those sacked were found to have overstayed, mentally unstable, physically blind and have falsified their age and credentials.

A man who gave his name as Osahon said his wife was affected. The state Commissioner for Basic Education, Patrick Aguinede, who confirmed the sack, said those affected were certified by the ICT after the screening.

He said those that have overstayed in service gave a scenario that the state government could not recruit new teachers.

According to him, “The teachers were found to have stayed above 35 years.

Some were physically blind, some manipulated their results and age which later showed they finished school before they were born.”
