Mr Michael Alogba, the National President, Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), has called for the setting up of teachers tribunal to try teachers against unprofessional ethics.

Alogba made the call on Wednesday in Ibadan at a workshop on Training the Trainers organised by the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) for selected teachers in the country.

Alogba said that the union was not always happy when teachers engaged in unethical behaviours.

He said that the TUC was more concerned about the standard in teaching, adding, “one cannot give what one does not have’’.

“We are more concerned about the standard in teaching. There should be no room for quarks in the teaching profession."

“This is because quacks will go into the classroom, damage the pupils and possibly make them more confused than they were before, it is the responsibility of the NUT to ensure this does not happen,” he said.

The NUT president, however, commended the Buhari administration in the restructuring of the education sector.

He said that the union was more than ready to partner with the TRCN to move the teaching profession in Nigeria to a place of Eldorado.

He said that the move by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, and the TRCN in terms of professionalism in the teaching profession “is a right step in the right direction’’.

“This move of making teaching to a professional standard will bring about change in attitude and will improve the quality of education in the country,” he said.
