Teachers Are Dumping Teaching Jobs At Alarming Rate – FG

It has been observed that a high number of teachers are leaving the teaching profession, for other plum jobs at an alarming rate.

This was disclosed by the  Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, during a visit to the housemates of ‘Teachers Naija Reality TV Show’ in Abuja on Thursday.

According to Nwajiuba,  “This is very minimum in terms of the percentage, when you look at the nearly 2.2 million teachers in Nigeria.”

He made it known that, “This is a really small representation of the variety of teachers we have but we think if we can encourage these persons to make the teaching profession look good, it will help us to attract better persons because we are also losing teachers.”

He added that, “We are losing teachers because as soon as they get an opportunity, they tend to take off and we want teachers to stay, because we are all products of teachers.”
