The 2020 Staff Audit Committee constituted by the Niger
State Universal Basic Education Board (NSUBEB), on Monday
said that no fewer than 2,286 primary school teachers were
using questionable certificates.
Alhaji Ayuba Katako, Central Chairman of the Committee,
made this known during the presentation of the 2020 Staff
Audit report to the board’s management of NSUBEB in Minna.
The board’s management had in June set up a six-man
committee to audit both teaching and non-teaching staff
members of NSUBEB across the 25 Local Government Areas
of the state.
Katako said that there were 28,058 staff in the primary schools
across the state, adding that 26,00 7 of them were screened,
out of which 23,721 were cleared and fit to work with SUBEB.
He noted that 2,286 of these primary school teachers were
using questionable certificates as some of them could not
read and write.
“When they heard that screening was going on they just came
to clear themselves and they are on the payroll.
“Some of them went to roadside business centres to print out
certificates and we could not ascertain their authenticity,” he
He disclosed that most of these certificates were reading
National Teachers’ Institute (NTI), Kaduna and did not
resemble the actual certificates issued by NTI.
Katako, however, noted that the committee also discovered
pending promotion of teachers, and in Zone A, teachers with
PhD were the ones teaching in classrooms while those with
Masters were the ones in the office.
Responding, Dr Adamu Isah, the state Chairman of SUBEB,
commended the committee for conducting the exercise
effectively, and said that the board would follow due diligence
of civil service rules to take decision on those found wanting.
He added that any teacher who could neither write nor read
would be disengaged as teachers and engaged in another
“These people will be engaged as cleaners, nannies and some
at local government offices in accordance with their
capacities,” he said.
Isah noted that they would get in touch with the institutions
issuing those certificates to confirm their authenticity and
anyone whose certificate was not authentic would have the
appointment terminated.
He, however, gave assurance that the report of the committee
would be implemented.
Also, Alhaji Kabiru Abbas, Board Member II, commended the
committee and said that the report “brings an end to all
allegations and insinuations from the public”
