Kwara sanctions 162 teachers

11 February 2013, 09:06

Kwara - The Kwara Government says it has sanctioned no fewer than 162 primary and secondary school teachers for miscellaneous offences.

The Director, Quality Assurance Bureau (QAB), Abubakar Mohammed, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin on Sunday.

Mohammed said that the teachers were sanctioned for absenteeism, lateness to school and insubordination.

``These teachers are also sanctioned for neglecting their duty posts during school hours, absent from work without permission, laziness and incompetence.

``The teachers, numbering about 162 were put on probation and issued with warnings and asked not to repeat such acts or engage in any act of indiscipline any longer.

He said that stricter punishment awaits any school teacher caught fighting, aiding and abetting of examination malpractice, impersonation and wanton destruction of school properties.

Mohammed told NAN that most of the teachers affected were from Government Secondary School Kulende, Muyideen Arabic Junior Secondary School Kulende and Alimayaki Primary School, Akerebiata among others.
