Go On Strike Tomorrow & Get Punished, El-Rufai Replies Kaduna Teachers

The Nigeria Union of Teachers, NUT, earlier on Sunday called on all teachers to remain at home until the state government reverses its decision to sack over 21,000 primary school teachers who scored below 75 per cent in a competency test.
