The Kaduna state government has sacked 65 teachers who were “illegally” recruited into the state’s education ministry.
Kaduna State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Auditor, Mr. Tandat Katuma confirmed the sack on Friday January 22.
The auditor who served as the secretary of the investigation committee, disclosed that the teachers were recruited illegally in Sanga Local Government Area of the state.
According to the council chairman, Charles Danladi who also commented on the sack the anomaly was detected through the over-bloated wage bill of the teachers which kept increasing every month without new employment.
Mr Danladi said after he raised the alarm during the state’s Joint Account Committee Meeting which was chaired by the deputy governor, SUBEB was asked to launch an investigation.
It was further learnt that the SUBEB officials involved in the illegal recruitment exercise had been sanctioned
