Principals of Public Secondary Schools in Ekiti State have been warned against violations of laid down rules and involvement in activities that could lead to sanctions in the daily discharge of their duties.

The Permanent Secretary of the State Teaching Service Commission, Mr Mike Omolayo gave the warning at an interactive session with Principals of public secondary schools in Ado Ekiti.

Omolayo said Government would not fold its arms and allow indiscipline and acts of sharp practices in public schools adding that handing-over process among principals should be concluded immediately transfer is effected.

He wondered why handing-over processes would take longer than necessary after posting or retirement of affected personnel, stressing that such an attitude would be sanctioned if discovered.

While commending the resilience, dedication and hard work of some of the principals, the Permanent Secretary admonished them not to withhold vital informations concerning the day to day running of their various schools, saying that delay in giving information to appropriate quarters is counter productive to the smooth administration of schools and for the planning for the education sector by Government

Mr Omolayo disclosed that efforts have reached advanced stage at the Federal level for the establishment of Senior Secondary Education Commission which is expected to be domesticated at the State level, stressing that the mandate of the proposed commission would transcend personnel matters.

Welcoming the Principals to the meeting, the State President of All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools, (ANCOPSS), Mrs Adekemi Olukowade called on her colleagues to be exemplary in their services to the government and people of Ekiti State.

She charged principals to be dedicated, disciplined and diligent at all times.

Mrs Olukowade encouraged members of the association to explore discussions among themselves, engage in active partnerships and cultivate inter-connectivity that transcend the boundaries of their individual school community.

She stressed further that collective navigation through the challenges would lead to successes as well as raised the standard of education in the State.

In their goodwill messages, the Tutors-General for Ekiti Central, South and North, Mr Victor Amele, Mrs Omowumi Adewumi and Mrs Adesola Ogunkorode respectively charged the Principals to re-dedicate themselves to their duties, calling on them to live above board.

The Tutors-General advised them to make sacrifices and work hard to leave behind legacies of physical and intellectual achievements that would stand the test of time.

They admonished the principals to invest more in character moulding, discipline of students and teachers in their care and always lead by examples
