4,403 Teachers Fail Certificate Screening Test In Ebonyi

Over 4000 primary school teachers in Ebonyi State have failed a test conducted by the state’s Universal Basic Education Board to determine the originality of their teacher training certificates.

Chairman of the boards investigating committee, Prof. Anthony Ani, who disclosed this in Abakaliki, the state capital over the weekend, said out of the 9000 teachers screened, half of them were discovered to have fake teacher training certificates.

He said, “The board should, as a matter of urgency, compile the names of teachers, especially those who presented statements of the result, testimonials, and photocopies and forwarded such names to acclaimed graduating institutions for verification and authentication.”

Ani also called for concerted efforts to revamp basic education in the state and 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.
