Taraba Suspends 7 Principals Over Alleged Sabotage

The Taraba State government has suspended seven principals through the Ministry of Education for sabotaging the state’s free education programme, which Governor Agbu Kefas recently declared.

Shortly after his assumption of office, the governor declared free and compulsory education for primary and secondary schools in the state; he also slashed 50 per cent of fees in the state’s owned high institutions.

The state commissioner for education, Mrs Augustina Yahaya, announced the suspension of the seven principals in her office. She said all seven principals had committed different offences aimed at sabotaging the success of the free education, as the governor had declared.

She said, “The Principal of Government Day Secondary School, Jauro Yino, is suspended for collecting monies from students for NECO, and the principal of Yakasali in Wukari is suspended for collecting money and selling WAEC slots to external students.

“The principal of GDSS Kakulu in Zing is also suspended for negligence, for not monitoring properly while denying 105 final year students from registering for their exams.”

School principals suspended by the commissioner include, GDSS Kofai and Salihu Dogo in Jalingo, GDSS Kununi in Lau, GDSS Jouro Yinu in Ardo-Kola, GDSS Kakulu in Zing, GSS Takum, and GDSS Yakassai in Wukari.
