Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo Sacks 1000 Teachers Employed By His Predecessor, Willie Obiano.


Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo has said that no fewer than 1,000 teachers in the state have been sacked because they were employed by the former Governor Willie Obiano in an irregular and hazy circumstances.

The Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Chris Aburime stated that the sacked teachers thereby remained unqualified for the job, as no qualified teacher was sacked by the government, mentioning that the termination of their appointments was in line with his administration’s effort at repositioning the education sector.

Furthermore, the statement read that “The attention of the governor had been drawn to publications on protest by Parents/Teachers Association (PTA) teachers, purportedly converted to permanent staff in Anambra schools. The protesters, who barricaded the entrance of the state House of Assembly, displayed placards with various inscriptions, claiming to have been engaged by the state government before the termination of their jobs,” the statement said.

It added, “For the avoidance of doubt, no qualified teacher in the state’s school system has been relieved of his/her appointment. The affected PTA teachers who were ‘converted’ to the school system in the last days of the last administration in irregular, hazy circumstances.”

Soludo’s government also revealed that the sacked teachers were “only asked to regularise their employment with the government by taking part in the online teachers’ recruitment test, adding that the arrangement would have ensured that “only those with requisite qualifications, proven capacity and commensurate experiences were recruited into the system.”

Prof. Soludo means well for the good people of Anambra state and will stop at nothing in giving them the best, education inclusive.”
