The Registrar, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria, Professor Segun Ajiboye on sunday says full enforcement against unregistered and unlicensed teachers would begin in January 2020.
The TRCN boss while speaking with STV in Ibadan says any teacher not registered by the Council by December 31, 2019 will not be allowed to practice anymore in Nigeria.
According to him, a letter of reminder is being written to Commissioners of Education and the Education secretary in Federal Capital Territory on the need to ensure that practising teachers in their states get valid license before the deadline.
On how insecurity affects teaching, Ajiboye stated that the Council is trying to bring back to the classrooms, teachers who have deserted the Northeast zone due terrorism.
He said that the plan is to re-motivate and change the psyche of the traumatised teachers to return to school.
