Umahi berates schools’ inspectors over immoral conduct
Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has condemned in strong terms, the activities of some primary and secondary school inspectors and secretaries, who abandoned their core duties for immoral and personal gains.
Speaking during a stakeholders meeting in Abakaliki, recently, Umahi regretted that despite the present administration’s efforts to create a functional and viable education sector, those that ought to complement government’s efforts were frustrating it instead.
Umahi alleged that the inspectors have abandoned their legitimate duties in pursuance of personal interests, and were also demanding for money, and sexual favours from teachers, who they are supposed to monitor and regulate their activities.
“Education inspectors and secretaries in the state have now become sex merchants. All they do is demand money and sex from teachers. The teachers have also become merchants in the school, selling clothes and other goods instead of focusing on their jobs.
“This is the reason we have cultism on the increase in schools because the teachers are not doing their work properly, and you are not inspecting them to make sure they do their jobs. This is a total collapse of the education system in the state,” Umahi lamented.
He, therefore, directed his deputy to initiate a restructuring of the sector immediately, beginning with the re-posting of all education secretaries and inspectors.
“Never again will any education secretary be allowed to work in his local government of origin,” he warned.
