Zulum announced the approval on Tuesday, March 26, while inaugurating the newly appointed 27 educational secretaries for the local government education authorities in Borno state.

According to the governor, the training would include 1,000 teachers identified to have ‘O’ level certificates, and those without certificates but have the requisite experiences, Channels TV reported.

Zulum noted that the training would cover teachers who do not have teaching qualifications but were found to be trainable based on the record of the competency test conducted.

Before declaring open the training for the teachers, Zulum said his administration would prioritise the education sector which has reduced the number of out-of-school children from two million to 800,000 within the past five years.

The governor charged the newly appointed education secretaries to live up to expectations and warned that anyone found to be underperforming would be replaced, Arise TV reported.

Borno adjusts school calendar for Ramadan

TheTalk.NG earlier reported that Borno state government issued a fresh directive to schools during the month of Ramadan.

The Borno State Ministry of Education has directed primary and secondary schools to adjust their calendar and timing.

The state director of school services in the ministry, Alhaji Mustapha Bukar, made this known to newsmen on Monday, March 11, in Maiduguri.

According to him, the adjustment was because of the fasting period. He added that schools should close by noon instead of 1.30pm.
