CrossRiverWatch reports that the affected teachers were from the Biase Local Government Area of the state.

The demotion was announced by the board’s chairman, Dr. Steven Odey, following the ongoing teachers' verification and promotion exercise in the state by the board.

While announcing the demotion of the teachers, Dr. Odey said:

“You have no business being in the teaching profession without the requisite qualification; you cannot give what you do not have.

If you want to become a teacher, do the right thing by going to school to read and qualify for the job.
