Nigerians Protest over Mass Sacking of ‘Failed’Teachers

The Teaching fraternity in Nigeria, Africa’s Most Populous Coutry has been hit with varied agitations since late 2017 after the Kaduna State Government sacked about 22,000 teachers after they have failed a competency test.

A situation that had compelled the Nigerian Teacher Unions to engage in  a three – day fasting and Prayer over sacking of such teachers.

Hundreds of workers in Nigeria on January12,2018  have protested in Nigeria’s northern city of Kaduna against the state government’s sacking of around 22,000 teachers after they failed a competency test.

The government has also fired about 4,000 administrative staff at local government level in order to reduce what it called a “bloated and unproductive” civil service.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), which orgnaised the protest, described the sackings as “callous”, saying it will leave thousands of workers and their families without a livelihood.

Unions have also called for a strike across Kaduna state to show solidarity with the affected workers.

The demonstrations took place amid heavy security, with police and soldiers present.
