Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, the commissioner for education in Anambra State, was caught on camera denigrating a candidate for employment there.
The candidate who was asking questions concerning the state’s teacher recruiting process that took place last Saturday was insulted by the commissioner.
The commissioner criticized the candidate and her coworkers for their conduct throughout the hiring process in a voice message that has since gone viral.
Chuma-Udeh called the female candidate a thug and an imbecile who had no business wanting to be a teacher or working in the field of education.
She said: “Madam, you’re an idiot. You mean the computers are doing what? I received a report by 12 noon that you people refused to stand in line, you refused to be identified; you mobbed.
“You people were trying to get into the hall at the same time; you refused to be disciplined, and you have the effrontery… You stupid woman to call me on the phone and talk rubbish.
“Get out of my phone you filthy thing. Do you really want to be a teacher? How will you tell your students to conform to instructions, when you cannot stand in line and move line in line, and you want to be a teacher when you are behaving like hooligans.
“I have nothing for you and I have nothing to say to you. We have already examined up to 1,400 candidates and …you are all hooligans. I hope you understand me. Thank you.”
