Kaduna state Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Malam Ja’afaru Sani, has said a PhD holder was among the list of newly recruited teachers in the state.

He announced this during a news conference in Kaduna at the weekend.

Sani said the state government has recruited additional 13,606 qualified teachers for its public primary schools, including a PhD holder.

Adding that, “apart from the one PhD holder, 8,494 out of the 25,000 recruited teachers were first degree holders, while the rest were National Certificate in Education (NCE) holders.”

Commenting further, he said the state government will soon start the implementation of free education for female students in public secondary schools.

Currently, he said there are about 191,445 female students currently in public schools to benefit from the gesture that would cost the government N143.587 million every term and N430.791 million every year.

The commissioner averred that the exercise completed the recruitment of 25,000 vacancies announced after the sacked of about 22,000 alleged unqualified primary school teachers in January.
