Buhari lauds el-Rufai’s move to sack 22,000 teachers amidst protest by Labour, others

Amidst protest by labour unions and some Nigerians, President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday gave his nod to moves by Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State to sack 21,780 teachers in the state.

The teachers reportedly failed the competency test conducted by the state government recently.
