Nigerian Teacher Union Says Only Registered Teachers Will Go To Liberia



The Registrar and Chief Executive, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Prof. Segun Ajiboye, on Tuesday said only teachers who were registered with the TRCN would be considered for teaching appointment in Liberia.
Recently President George Weah requested the Nigerian Government to assist Liberia in sending in teachers to Liberia to beef up teacher-pupil gap during his state visit to Nigeria.
Weah said that under the Bilateral Teacher Exchange Programme, Liberia needed more than 6,000 teachers to make up for the shortage of good teachers in the educational system.
Ajiboye, who spoke to journalists at the University of Ibadan, said that TRCN had enough qualified teachers in its fold for the transnational exchange, adding that the body had more than two million qualified teachers in its register.
According to him, the request for Nigerian teachers by the Liberian president was a sign that teachers trained in Nigeria have international appeal.
He said, “The request for Nigerian teachers to develop the educational sector of Liberia was a marker to the international recognition of the quality that a Nigerian teacher is made of.
“We have registered two million qualified and certified professional teachers and only those certified by the council shall be processed for such transnational request.”

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

“I commend Mayor Smith. He’s done a great job for the city, and I hope to work with him in the future," Collins said. 
At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
