Cross River State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), has appealed to the federal government to increase the number of teachers under the auspices SUBEB so that the problem of teacher deficit bedeviling schools in the state can be addressed.
SUBEB Secretary, Cyril Itam made the appeal while speaking at the Big Qua Girls Secondary School, Calabar, Centre for screening test for candidates from the Southern Senatorial District in the Federal Teachers’ Scheme (FTS).
He lauded the federal government for the FTS describing it as an initiative to boost education in the state and the country at large. The SUBEB secretary stressed the need to recruit more teachers so as to ensure a balanced teacher-student ratio.
“In the basic education sector, even if you give us 100,000 teachers we will be very glad because we lack teachers. “500 candidates were shortlisted and from what I have seen here in this center, not everyone wrote the screening test. Speaking shortly after the exercise, Assistant Director, Internal
Audit UBEC, Elder Edward Abalaka, said the screening test was conducted simultaneously in all the 36 states including the FCT, adding that successful candidates will be chosen based on their performance and the quota given to each state. Abalaka said that although the FTS is an intervention programme by the Federal Government to bridge the gap in teacher deficit in the country, the state is advised to absorb them after the two years window.
