The TRCN Registrar, Josiah Ajiboye said this during the monitoring of the examination at the Federal Capital Territory, FCT Centre.

Ajiboye said the examination conducted in 50 centres across the country started on Friday in states that have large number of candidates.

‎‎The TRCN scribe said the large number of candidates was because of the December 2019 deadline to flush unqualified teachers out from the classrooms.
