A retired Permanent Secretary has been caught in Anambra taking the teachers’ recruitment examination for his children.
The State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, disclosed this on Wednesday. She did not give the name of the former permanent but revealed that he is 68 years old.
The commissioner blamed the discovery for her outburst which has attracted widespread condemnation.
She spoke in Awka, the state capital, while defending a viral video where she was heard calling a teacher applicant an idiot on the telephone.
According to her, the retired permanent secretary was writing the tests for his three children.
In the video, Udeh was heard saying: “Madam, you are an idiot. You mean the computers are doing what?
“I received a report by 12 noon that you people refused to stand in line. You refused to be identified. You mobbed and you were all trying to get into the hall at the same time. You refused to be disciplined up till this moment and you have the effrontery, you this stupid woman, you have the effrontery to call me on the phone to talk rubbish.
“Will you get out of my phone, you filthy thing! You really want to be a teacher? How will you tell your students to conform to instructions when you cannot stand line in line and move into the hall?”
