More than 4,400 teachers in Ebonyi fail screening test
A total of 4,403 primary school teachers in Ebonyi State have failed a screening test conducted by an investigating team set up by the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) to screen teachers and rid the system of quacks.
This is coming on the heels of revelation that no fewer than 105 teachers operating in the state has no teaching qualifications.
Nineteen of them were found not to be physically fit for the classroom.

The leader of the investigating committee, Professor Anthony Ani, made this disclosure at the weekend in Abakaliki, at the presentation of the committee’s report to the board.
Ani disclosed that about 437 out of the over 9,000 teachers screened during the exercise have grade 2 certificates.
He added that over 50 per cent of primary school teachers in the state were without original certificates.

“More than half of the population of primary school teachers in the state were without original certificate in their profession. The board should as a matter of urgency compile names of teachers, especially those who presented statement of results, testimonials, photocopies and forward such names to acclaimed graduating institutions for verification and authentication” he said.

While calling for concerted efforts to revamp basic education in the state, Prof. Ani recommended that teachers with severe medical challenges should be advised to seek medical attention with government support or be retired from the system, in line with government regulation.

Receiving the report, SUBEB’s Chairman, Chief Hyacinth Ikpor, while expressing government resolve to sanitize the education sector, assured that the report would be implemented to the letter.

He also decried the high rate of fake teachers in the state, saying, “The report is very vital, we shall close our eyes and implement the report.’’

God bless the hardworking Governor of Ebonyi State.
