Kogi to replicate competency test on primary school teachers as delegation visits Kaduna


Kogi State government is set to also conduct a competency test similar to the one done by the Kaduna State government on teachers teaching in its public schools.

Governor Yahaya Bello has sent a delegation led by Kogi State’s Commissioner for Education, Hon. J.S Tolorunleke to Kaduna to understudy the competency test conducted by Governor El-Rufai's administration with a view to replicating the same.

While revealing this on its Twitter account on Monday, the Kaduna State government said other State Governors have also shown interest in conducting competency tests for primary school teachers in their public schools.

“We will continue to share our experience so as to salvage the education sector in Nigeria,” Kaduna state government added on the Twitter account.

Alhaji Abubakar Salihu, an official of Kaduna SUBEB presented the document which contains the processes and procedures used in conducting the competency test for primary school teachers in public schools to the Kogi State Government’s delegation on behalf of Kaduna State Government.

Kogi State Commissioner for Education commended Governor El-rufai for his political will to implement the educational reform while promising that Governor Bello will do the same in Kogi.

Below are tweets by El-Rufai on the visit of Kogi education commissioner to Kaduna State:

“FLASH: Kogi State Government’s delegation led by the Commissioner for Education, Hon. J.S Tolorunleke are in Kaduna to understudy the competency test conducted for primary school teachers in public schools so as to replicate the same in Kogi State.

“Kogi State Commissioner for Education commends Governor Nasir @elrufai for his political will to implement this educational reform. Promises that Governor Yahaya Bello will do the same in Kogi.

“Alhaji Abubakar Salihu (DAF SUBEB) on behalf of Kaduna State Government now presenting a document which contains the processes and procedures used in conducting the competency test for primary school teachers in public schools to the Kogi State Government’s delegation.


“FLASH: Few other State Governors have contacted the Kaduna State Government showing interest in conducting competency tests for primary school teachers in public schools. We will continue to share our experience so as to salvage the education sector in Nigeria.”
