Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole yesterday nabbed a teacher Mrs. Augusta Odemwigwe who could not read properly.

Mrs Odemwigwe was asked to read an affidavit she swore to declare her age but to the amusement of all, she stuttered continuously until the governor helped in reading it for her.

The teacher, when asked to repeat a sentence she didn’t read well replied in ‘pigin’ English saying “make I start am afresh”.

Oshiomhole, stunned by the low level of intellect displayed by Odemwigwe, who has spent 20 years in the profession, read the sworn affidavit and wondered if she could write same on the board.

Mrs Odemwigwe has spent over 20 years in the teaching profession and presently teaches in Asalogun Primary School in Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area of Edo state.

The governor discovered this during an exercise to screen over a thousand teachers involved in fraud. The teachers are accused of falsifying documents to get into service.
