About 73,000 applicants have applied for about 10,000 primary school teaching jobs advertised by the Kaduna State Universal Basic Education Board (Kaduna SUBEB).

This was disclosed by Alhaji Tijjani Abdullahi, the Executive Chairman, Kaduna SUBEB, in Kaduna on Monday at the start of the computer-based test at the Kaduna State University Centre for the shortlisted applicants.

Abdullahi, represented by Mr Mubarak Mohammed, the Board’s Permanent Member, Project, said that the examination was taking place simultaneously in centres in Kaduna, Zaria and Kafanchan.

He said that the examination, which would last from Oct. 17 to Oct. 28, would be thorough, adding that only qualified and competent applicants would be recruited.

He explained that the board adopted the computer-based test to ensure that those that would be recruited were computer literate, to enable them align with the technologically-driven world.

Abdullahi also explained that the recruitment became necessary because of the identified teacher-gap in primary schools across the state, after a teacher-gap analysis conducted by the board.
