Kano Govt. Discovers Over 3,000 Private School Teachers On Govt. Payroll

From Maduabuchi Nmeribeh, Kano

Kano state government has discovered over 3000  teachers  in private schools who are illegally collecting salaries and allowances from the state government.

The teachers whose name appear in government payroll sheet abandoned their classrooms only to teach and mentor in private schools where they also collect salaries.

According to a Statement signed the the Public Relations Officer in the state Ministry of Education, Aliyu Yusuf, barely three days after the commencement of the screening excercise by the Ministerial Committee for the recall of teachers on Kano state  government’s payroll that were posted to private, voluntary and Community Schools in the state, 3,268 have been discovered.

The Statement added that, “the Committee which is under the chairmanship of Dr. Ibrahim Bichi (Executive Secretary, Kano State Library Board) by  has  further uncovered  that some of the  identified  staff, have  spent more than 10 to 15 years serving in  private schools, while enjoying monthly salaries from either state or local government pay rolls in addition to furthering their studies for higher degrees ranging from M. Sc and Ph D certificates.

“It was also discovered that while on such postings, the teachers are enjoying their  consistent   promotions upto directorate cadre. 

“According to the interim report of the Committee, it was similarly gathered that a single private school has more than 50 teachers  posted from government schools over the years, a negative development that must be put to a halt to address the lingering problem of teachers shortfall in public schools in the state.

“Parents and members of the general public are therefore called upon to be patient, as the whole excercise was aimed at sanitizing the state education system for the better.”
