Pregnant Lady Collapses During Open Recruitment

A pregnant lady collapsed at Aka Community Secondary School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, during the teachers’ recruitment exercise on Monday.

It was learnt that government officials who noticed when the pregnant woman collapsed, quickly separated other pregnant women and nursing mothers from the queues.

They were also attended to by nurses.

It was observed that there was chaos as some people pretended to be teachers in the school and wanted to sneak into the queues.

One of the applicants, Mr. Aniekan Udofia told Punch that the pregnant woman had been revived, adding that was on the queues since 7am but got the recruitment form around 3.46pm.

“Since getting my National Certificate in Education in 2009, I have yet to get employment.”
