Kaduna State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) on Monday said it would conclude the recruitment of 13,665 teachers for public primary schools in the state by the end of this month.
Executive Chairman of the board, Malam Nasiru Umar, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna, the state capital.
Umar said of the 65,000 applicants who sat for the recruitment examination, 13,665 would be employed.
He said marking the examination scripts had been concluded and names of the successful applicants would soon be announced for interview to select the most qualified ones.
He added that the interview for new teachers would conclude the recruitment process to fill the 25,000 vacancies earlier announced in the state’s public primary schools.
Umar said 11,335 qualified teachers had earlier been recruited and deployed to public primary schools across the state.
It will be recalled that the state government had in November 2017 sacked about 22,000 alleged unqualified teachers in its primary school system and announced plans to recruit 25,000 qualified ones to replace them.
