Further more, Adamu Ango, Challenged the state government to present comprehensive results of the Test to the general public,alongside the international standard of teachers competency examination criteria.


According to Adamu Ango,”This is the third test conducted on teachers. Where are the rest of the results? What are the criteria, who are the bodies that are supposed to conduct these exams? What is the agreed internationally accepted pass marks and the unconcluded verification exercise?


“The governor as an employer cannot be a judge in his own case, it is the duty of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, TRCN to conduct professional examinations for teachers,Or can the government organise examinations for medical doctors or lawyers? You cannot just come and set examinations and call it ‘primary four’ exam when we know it is not for primary four”. he said
