The minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has said that all teachers in the nation’s educational system without basic qualifications will be disengaged from the service by December 31, 2019.

Adamu, who was represented by the Executive Secretary, Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), Prof. Hamid Boboyi, disclosed this on Monday in Benin at the Edo Summit themed: “Edo of our dream, investing in people.”

“We must stop recruiting unqualified teachers into the system especially when we have many qualified teachers roaming our streets without regular jobs.

“The National Council of Education under my chairmanship has given a clear directive to all our unqualified teachers as well their employers to acquire the requisite qualifications or disengage from teaching on or before December 31, 2019. This remains an irrevocable order of the council,” he said.

Adamu expressed President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to sustain and fund basic education sub-sector through the UBEC or support state governments, adding that over N258.5 billion has been expended on basic education in the country.

Adamu noted that the challenge of effective basic education delivery in the country is the over 10 million out-of-school children in the primary school system and that it is essential for all stakeholders to sustain their efforts in ensuring that the figure is substantially brought down.
