Abeokuta - The Ogun Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) has appointed 26 principals, 67 vice principals and seven zonal secretaries.
Speaking at an induction programme for the appointees in Abeokuta on Sunday, the Chairman of the commission, Olubukunola Onabanjo, said the appointments were aimed at ensuring effective administration of schools.
Onabanjo urged the appointees to live above board in all their dealings and be diligent, adding that they must be resourceful, dynamic and innovative.
The TESCOM boss also advised the inductees to establish a good working relationship with all stakeholders.
She warned them against engaging in illegal acts such as collection of illegal levies and extortion under the guise of the Parent-Teachers Association (PTA).
Onabanjo called on the vice principals to be conversant with circulars issued by the commission and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology on school curriculum and financial transactions.
A Commissioner in the commission, Timothy Adebowale, had earlier noted that the appointments were based on merit and in accordance with teachers’ seniority list.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that with the latest appointees, the Ibikunle Amosun administration had so far appointed 140 principals and 310 vice principals.
