Enugu school board suspends 5 principals

15 February 2013, 16:02

Enugu - The Enugu State Post Primary School Management Board (PPSMB) has suspended five school principals for laxity in their work.

The Chairman of the board,  Gabriel Okafor, told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Friday that the principal failed to report for duties for two weeks.

He, however, declined to disclose the names of the affected principals and their schools.

Okafor said the suspension, which took effect from January, would last for a term.

The chairman said the affected principals would not be allowed to participate in any school activities during the period of the suspension.

``It was observed that some teachers did not like to work in rural areas and instead influence their transfers to the urban areas.

``The board would no longer allow transfers unless such persons had stayed for upward of four years in a place of posting.

``Some of the staff fail to turn up for work, while some only appear, just register their names and leave until the next day.”

The chairman said he assumed office in January 2012 and initiated morning assembly at 7.30 a.m. daily in a bid to get the staff to come to work.

He said that teachers and principals of some schools in Enugu did not come to work early enough to conduct such morning assembly and instead left the responsibility to students to conduct.

He called on the government to refurbish the schools and provide them with science and other equipment. (NAN)The Enugu State Post Primary School Management Board (PPSMB) has suspended five school principals for laxity in their work.
