For primary school, the governor said the minimum academic qualification will be a university first degree.
Kefas said the current era when the National Certificate of Education is the minimum academic qualification for primary school teachers will soon be over.

He added that the study of History as a subject would be reintroduced in the basic education curriculum in schools in the state.
Kefas said, “We are going to reintroduce History studies in our primary and secondary schools in the state to lay a solid foundation for accelerated development.
“In no distant time, primary schoolteachers in the state must be first degree holders while secondary school teachers must have a minimum of master’s degree to enhance the quality of education in the state.
“This is the main reason we have slashed the school fees for undergraduates in the state university.
“We must secure a good future for our children. Our free education policy is not a joke and anybody who stands on the way to achieving this will be crushed.”
The governor urged journalists to monitor the implementation of the state government’s free education policy in primary and secondary schools to ensure that all the school administrators were doing the right thing.
