Kwara assembly removes college chairman

28 February 2013, 09:02

IIorin - The Kwara House of Assembly on Wednesday approved the removal of the Chairman, Governing Council of the Kwara State College of Education, IIorin, Musa Yeketi forthwith.

This resolution followed  the report of its joint Committee on Education and Ethics, Privileges and Judiciary on the facts surrounding the suspension of the Chairman.

The Deputy Speaker of the House, Prof. Gana Yissa, who presided over the plenary, said the removal of the Chairman of the Governing Council followed an alleged financial scandal.

 "For the smooth administration of the College, the Chairman, Governing Council of the State College of Education, IIorin, Alhaji Musa Yeketi should be removed from office without further delay," Yissa said.

The House also directed Yeketi to refund the N3 million car loan obtained from the Kwara state Polythecnic, IIorin  when he was the Chairman, Governing Board of the institution which was offset by the College.

It  further directed  the Council Chairman to refund N1 million for the purchase of diesel to his private residence and N1 million monthly imprest collected between April, 2012 and January, 2013.

The house, however, urged the government to recall  the Acting Provost of the College, Dr. AbdulRahman Ibrahim from suspension without further delay.

The lawmakers also advised the government to put the necessary machinery in place for the appointment of a substantive provost.

The House directed the Governing Council of the College to adhere strictly to the law establishing the institution.
