The Cross Rivers State Government has disclosed plans to recruit at least 6000 new teachers in response to a shortage of educators in the state.

The Commissioner for Education, Stephen Odey, made this announcement during a press conference held in his office on Tuesday.

He highlighted the achievements of his ministry under the incumbent governor. Odey mentioned that Governor Otu has approved the proposal to recruit additional teachers.

He emphasized the need for more teachers, as some schools have only four or five educators, and many departments and agencies within the ministry lack sufficient staff.

To ensure the sustainability of teacher interest, various incentives will be provided, with a particular focus on recruiting candidates from local catchment areas, especially those residing in rural communities.

Odey also mentioned that previously demoted teachers who have upgraded their qualifications will be reinstated as per directives.

Addressing concerns about cultism in schools, Odey revealed that collaborative efforts are being made with the Department of State Security (DSS) and the police to combat this issue.
