70% of private school teachers in south-west are unqualified – TRCN boss

In a development that will shock many people across Nigeria, the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) has claimed that 70 per cent of private school teachers in Southwest states are unqualified.

The south-west states in Nigeria are Lagos, Osun, Ogun, Ondo, Oyo and Ekiti.

TRCN which is the regulatory body for teaching in Nigeria insisted that the said teachers they don’t only cheat the pupils/students but the system in its entirety.

This was disclosed by the council’s registrar, Prof. Josiah Ajiboye on Thursday, May 4, in Abuja at the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Council and INSTILL Education.

“A large number of teachers in private schools in Nigeria today are not qualified. We wanted to use a consultant to get revenue from teachers in private schools. When we carried out a survey, we observed that a reasonable amount of 70 percent of teachers in the south-west are not qualified as well,” he said.

Going further, the TRCN boss stated that a large number of teachers in Nigeria had never been exposed to training and had been using outdated equipment for illustration.
