Gombe pro­motes 8,674 teach­ers

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ahmed Mo­hammed, Gombe

Gombe State Gover­nor Ibrahim Has­san Dankwambo has ap­proved the pro­mo­tion of 8,648 teach­ers in all 11 lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas.

It was gath­ered that teach­ers in the state had not been pro­moted in the past eight years. Sec­re­tary of the State Uni­ver­sal Ba­sic Ed­u­ca­tion Board, Al­haji Adamu Muham­mad Salama, stated this while speak­ing with news­men in Gombe yesterday.

“The last time they were pro­moted was in 2007”, he said.

Al­haji Adamu said when the gover­nor di­rected SUBEB to look into prob­lems of teach­ers, the board asked the 11 lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas to sub­mit the list of those that were due for pro­mo­tion.

He said the board then set up a com­mit­tee which ver­i­fied their cases.

He said those on Grade Level 7 were pro­moted to Grade Level 9, while those on Level 9 were moved to Level 12 and 13.

He said they had given the pro­mo­tion letters to teach­ers in nine lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas and those in the re­main­ing two lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas would soon be given theirs.

Salama said the gover­nor also di­rected the de­duc­tion of N68 mil­lion from lo­cal gov­ern­ment al­lo­ca­tions to en­sure that the pro­mo­tion is backed by salary in­crease.

He main­tained that teach­ers should qual­ify for pro­mo­tion af­ter ev­ery three years.
