(By Silas Ofori)-There is panic among unqualified teachers in Nigeria following threats by Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN, to, go after unqualified teachers in public and private schools when schools fully reopen

This indication was given by the Registrar/CEO, Prof. Josiah Ajiboye, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, explaining that enough time have been given to the unqualified teachers to meet up with demands and that those who failed to do so will have themselves to blame.

He further stated: “We have about 2.2 million teachers registered with TRCN, but the figure is still extremely low. From available statistics, we have about 4 million teachers in the country’’, stressing that TRCN has officials in all the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, and that they will move around to check compliance as soon as school fully resumes.
