The rave and agitations about the competence test for teachers in Edo state has finally yielded fruits as the state governor, Adams Oshiomhole have directed that the test should be cancelled.
Announcing this, the Governor said that the 936 teachers whose names had been deleted from the payroll over certificate discrepancies and age falsification has been recalled.
“The state government’s commitment to carry out competency test was informed by these broad facts having discovered that some of our teachers were not qualified or up to date with recent teaching methods.
“However, having listened to all suggestions and consultations with various groups, Government has agreed to set aside the Competency or Assessment test in order to re assure Edo workers that government hasno intention to sack anyone”, he said.
