This was disclosed by the Chairman of the FCT wing of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Comrade Stephen Knabayi, at Teachers House in Gwagwalada, who said the screening exercise would commence today, February 10th and end on February 23, 2021.

Com Knabayi said a 75-member committee inaugurated last Thursday by the FCT permanent secretary, comprising members from the NUT, the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) and the FCTA was to conduct the screening.

He said, “With the way they have streamlined the screening process; that it is going to be done zone by zone, we are optimistic that the exercise shall be completed within the stipulated time.”

The NUT chairman disclosed that arrangements had been made to provide security for the committee members, especially those that would be going to rural schools and therefore called on the teachers and staff of the LEAs to cooperate with the members of the committee.
