The Executive Chairman, Cross River Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Dr Stephen Odey, said the board would not tolerate any form of fraudulent activity by teachers in the state.
Odey gave this warning on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, in Calabar when he received an award from the participants of the Federal Teachers Scheme (FTS) on behalf of Governor Ben Ayade.
He said since his assumption of office in 2016, the board had remained focused in the pursuit of excellence in line with the governor’s vision of restoring the lost glory of the basic education sector.
Odey described the leadership award given to the governor as an award of service to himself as the society’s approval of his good job.
He further thanked the scheme for the award as it will serve as a motivation to the administration in its strive for excellence in the education sector and the basic education sub sector in particular.
He added that SUBEB under his leadership runs an open door policy and ensures transparency in all its dealings and do not collect money for employment purposes.
Odey pointed that we do not tolerate the use of fake certificates and we will always go after fraudsters in order to ensure that education remains the centre of excellence in Cross River state.
He described the SUBEB chairman as a disciplined and hardworking administrator, stressing that it is evident in the numerous achievements recorded by the board. He thanked the chairman for setting the pace as well as having a good blueprint for us as the younger generation to come and inherit.
