This was disclosed by the chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Prof. Matthew Suleiman, last Friday while speaking with reporters in Jos.
Suleiman said the promotion was part of the board’s motivation strategy to ensure good performance and commitment to duty.
“Today, we have approved the promotion of over 9,000 teachers, as a mark of honour to them in the celebration of the World Teachers’ Day.
“The welfare of teachers is taken very seriously by the Gov. Simon Lalong-led administration, salaries of teachers are paid as at when due.
“There was a time when more than 2000 teachers were put out of job, we have brought back,” he said.
He said that the World Teachers’ Day was marked to enable them reflect on their role as custodian of values and role model for children.
The SUBEB boss urged the teachers to redouble and rededicate their efforts, in the service of the nation, saying that training organised by SUBEB has increased quality of teaching by teachers.
