Mr Rodney Nathan, Chairman of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) in Adamawa has commended the Federal Government for establishing the National Secondary Schools Commission (NSSC).
Nathan gave the commendation on Wednesday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola.
The NUT boss said that the commission would check excesses inherent in some secondary schools which were not in conformity with the norms and values of secondary education.
He also said that the commission would check quackery and restore the high standard of education in the country.
Nathan gave an assurance that the union in Adamawa would support the commission to succeed.
According to him, this will go a long way in ameliorating the decay in secondary school education.
“We teachers received the news of the establishment of the National Secondary Schools Commission with great joy.
“This commission must eradicate quackery by way of regulations to restore the standard and quality education in Nigeria.
“We thank the Federal Government for taking such a bold step with a goal to upgrade the standard of our education.
“On our part as NUT, we will support the commission to achieve its goal, ’’ Nathan said.
