Teachers sent abroad for training have absconded - Jigawa Govt | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Jigawa State Government has disclosed that some teachers said to have gone for in-service courses in universities across the world, have graduated but has since refused to report to their place of work.


The action of those teachers compelled the government to further suspend indefinitely in-service training courses and set up special committee to find those involved and other teachers receiving salaries without coming to work, Vanguard reports.

The government was furious that the teachers betrayed its trust by remaining abroad when their expertise was needed back home.

Lamenting the development, the Head of Service, Mohammed Inuwa Tahir, told journalists yesterday that some workers spent 14 to 15 years studying.

He said: “What kind of degree course does a worker spend 15 years studying and still collecting salaries.

“Our government will not condone laziness and unfair act by some workers who have the habit of completing their study and refusing to report back to their place of work.”

The officials said the screening committee was established to fish out absentees and ghost workers, contrary to some insinuations that it was set up to witch-hunt workers.
