During the course of the week, Governor el Rufai was in the news again for proposing to sack 22,000 primry school teachers who had failed the Kaduna state Competency Test. First there was a protest then the teachers filed a legal suit against the Governor. He retaliated by releasing some answer scripts to the court of pubic opinion. His only concession was allowing the teachers to reapply when he conducts new test to select new teachers in December.
Social media had a field day going back and forth, arguing for and against el Rufai’s decision.
