The Registrar of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Professor Segun Ajiboye, on Wednesday declared that the council was not backing down on the December 31, 2019 deadline to flush out unqualified teachers from Nigerian classrooms.

Ajiboye made this disclosure while speaking with journalists in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Ajiboye insisted that the National Council of Education has set the deadline for all teachers in Nigerian classrooms to get registered, qualified and licensed by the TRCN.

Press gathered that the Federal Ministry of Education had on June 7, 2019 sent a Circular to all Principals on the December 31, deadline for unqualified teachers to leave Nigerian People classrooms.

Ajiboye, while speaking on the importance of the registration, maintained that, Nigeria needed quality teachers to deliver quality education and not those he called ‘cheaters’.

He hinted that the ultimate goal was to remove quackery from the teaching profession in order to ensure that only those with required competencies give Nigerian children quality education.

He urged those yet to be registered to take the opportunity of the qualifying tests and get registered by the council before the deadline.

Ajiboye said, “You need quality teachers to deliver quality education. The Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria’s mandate is to determine those who are teachers in terms of their qualifications and registration with the agency.

“Globally teacher professionalism has become very imperative through appropriate regulatory standards as prescribed by the teaching regulatory authority in the country. There is still time to be registered.

“The window opportunity is still open. Yes we are not backing down on the December 31, 2019 deadline given by the National Council on Education for all teachers in Nigeria to get qualified, registered and licensed by the TRCN.

“The FME is supporting TRCN in every way possible to achieve this target.”
