The Ekiti State chairman of the Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Prof. Femi Akinwumi, gave the warning while opening a five-day training program for primary schools’ Quality Assurance Officers held at the Ikogosi Warm Spring Resort Centre, Ikogosi in Ekiti West Local Council of the state.

According to Akinwumi, the refusal of teachers to work in rural areas has led to an excess concentration of teachers in urban areas, leaving the rural area understaffed.  He added that the board would undertake a redistribution policy to correct the imbalance.


He said the government will come up with a new policy that gives teachers the choices of either honouring their postings or asking them to tender their resignation.
