The minister, who said teaching had ceased to be an all-comers affairs, warned teachers to register with the Teachers’ Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) before the end of this year or risk being sent out of classrooms.

He added that plan was modelled after Malaysia.

He said: The planning was geared towards the development of human resources. In Malaysia, top per cent of those who scored the highest in their equivalent of JAMB compete to be teachers.

“If you are a teacher in Malaysia, you are to be ranked than any other worker in the country. This is why you will find people with PhDs teaching in primary schools. Teachers are paid higher than any other person in Malaysia and we have made that recommendation and we are going to do that in Nigeria.”
