Baga, Borno - Perhaps the presence of Governor Babagana Zulum in some secondary schools at the Baga area of Borno was not expected on Monday, August 9.
This was why the aptitude test the professor conducted for the teachers came as an impromptu one, Daily Trust reports.
However, the test, according to the governor's media aide, Isa Gusau, was not meant to sack them, but to ascertain the level of their qualifications and capacity for the job.
