The Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN Segun Ajiboye says the council has written to the Director- General, National Youth Service Corp, NYSC, advising him to stop posting graduates without Education degrees to teach in schools.

Ajiboye was quoted as telling newsmen in Ibadan, Oyo State that the measure is one of the steps toward transforming education in the country.

He explained that most of those posted to teach in the mandatory one year scheme do not have qualification to teach, saying education system gets ruined when unqualified persons without requisite professional skills are deployed to teach. Ajiboye however acknowledged that there was a dearth of qualified teachers in some states of the federation, noting that majority of those teaching in private nursery and primary schools nationwide were not qualified to be in the class
