President Muhammadu Buhari has on Monday shown support for Kaduna state's governor El-Rufai's plan to sack about 22,000 teachers who failed a competency test.

Although the move has been condemned by labour unions and other bodes, Pres. Buhari made his stance known at a special retreat of the Federal Executive Council in Abuja.

In a tweet announcing the commencement of the retreat, the President said "I touched on the situation in Kaduna, where Gov is trying to implement important reforms. It's a very serious situation when teachers cannot pass the exams they're supposed to administer to their students. It underscores the urgent need for comprehensive national reform.
