After a teachers' verification and promotion exercise in Cross River state, the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) has demoted eleven teachers who failed to present qualifications to prove that they are educated enough to be primary school teachers.
Leadership reports that the demotion was announced by the board’s chairman, Dr. Steven Odey at the state capital after the verification exam.
Odey while addressing the affected teachers said: “You have no business being in the teaching profession without the requisite qualification; you cannot give what you do not have. If you want to become a teacher, do the right thing by going to school to read and qualify for the job.
“Your services will henceforth be needed in the area of tackling insecurity challenges being faced by the school.”
Odey advised other qualified teachers in the school to live up to their responsibilities through the maximization of all resources at their disposal, to improve the standard of education in the state.

On the issue of irregular payment of salary to primary school teachers in the state, Odey said: “SUBEB has not taken over payment of salaries yet, the Ministry of Local Government is still responsible for that. When we eventually take over payment of your salaries, you will not have any cause to complain.”
Meanwhile, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has been slammed with a law suit over seizure of the result of students of Christ National Model College, Ido, Ibadan.
