No fewer than 11 teachers in the Cross River State Primary School system have been demoted to security guards by the state’s Basic Education Board (CRSUBEB).
The Chairman of the board, Dr. Stephen Odey who announced this Tuesday, said this follows the ongoing verification and promotion exercise of the teachers by the board with those who failed to present the requisite qualification certificates to work as class teachers demoted.
“You have no business being in the teaching profession without the requisite qualification; you cannot give what you do not have” Odey told the teachers.
He continued; “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.”
On the irregular payments of salaries to the teachers, Odey disclosed that; “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.”
