Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade has given instruction to the chairman State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) to commence the issuance of employment letters to 2,220 candidates who passed the teachers’ interview conducted by the Board some times ago to enable qualified candidates to commence teaching of primary school pupils in the state.
The appointment letters followed the conclusion of interviews conducted by SUBEB to enable them pick candidates that met the requisite standards set by the Board so that the best brains can be picked and given appointment as teachers in primary schools across the state.
In a statement signed by the executive chairman SUBEB, Dr Stephen Odey, and made available to LEADERSHIP in Calabar yesterday stated that successful candidates were shortlisted to fill the vacancies
created by retirement and death cases in the primary school system.
Odey added that successful candidates were only being selected based on merit after passing through a rigorous interview.
The statement directed all successful candidates to personally meet with the executive chairman of SUBEB Dr. Stephen Odey on January 22, in the morning at the West African Peoples Institute (WAPI) for collection of letters.
The SUBEB boss expressed gratitude to Governor Ayade for reducing the unemployment rate in the state by creating employment opportunities for Cross Riverians.
Odey said with Ayade, unemployment is going to become a thing of the past adding that if Cross Riverians were wise they wouldn’t have any need to have a second choice in the elections.
