Sonny Echono spoke while monitoring the conducts of the 2020 October Diet Batch B Teachers’ Professional Qualifying Examinations (PQE).
“By 2021, we will not engage teachers if they don’t meet a particular threshold. We are now limiting entry point of teaching only to the best who are qualified. We will engage individuals with second class upper and first-class divisions,” Sonny Echono said.
He also official disclosed that arrangements would be made for conversion programmes for such graduates.

“They will undergo specific programmes that will empower them to teach. We must enforce Mr President’s directive that only qualified teachers will be allowed into our classrooms,” he added.
He further assured that teachers would get better payments with peculiar allowances.
