The Principal of the Junior section of the Unity Secondary School, Malumfashi, Malam Nuradeen Abubakar and the Head Teacher of Rimaye Model Primary School, Malam Yakub Ibrahim have been demoted to classroom teachers by Governor Aminu Masari over negligence of duties and responsibilities.
Masari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media Abdu Labaran in a statement said the governor’s action was a result of an unscheduled visit to the schools last Sunday.
‘The schools, which are undergoing unprecedented rehabilitation, were found to have some of the renovated sections looking very dirty and unkempt due to neglect by both teachers and students just as a part of the wall surrounding the Malumfashi Unity Secondary school , which was only recently re-erected was forcibly broken-down to create an illegal entrance. The Rimaye Model Primary School, which was comprehensively renovated was found to be in disarray as doors and windows hanging ajar’ it said.
It added that ‘ the Governor’s action was aimed at sending a warning to other principals and head teachers to sit up or face similar or worse punishment’.
Also, Governor Masari has directed that all retired secondary school teachers still living in government quarters to vacate with immediate effect.
