Ekiti SUBEB Sanctions Head Teacher Over Illegal Collection of Fees.

The management of Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board has suspended the Head Teacher of St. Philips CAC Nursery and Primary School, Erio – Ekiti, Mr. Adeniyi Olutayo Ayodele from his duty post for two months with immediate effect over allegations of illegal collection of fees from pupils of the school.

The Executive Chairman of SUBEB, Prof. Femi Akinwumi said in Ado Ekiti that the decision became necessary after the Head Teacher had confessed that he committed the infraction and pleaded guilty to some of the allegations leveled against him

Prof. Akinwumi said the head teacher had persisted in the illegal activities despite several warnings against such act which is described as sabotage against the free and compulsory education policy of the present administration in the state.

He revealed that evidence proved that Mr Ayodele was collecting the sum of N25,000.00 naira from each of 28 pupils in primary six while another N8,000.00 was being collected from each of primary four pupils of the school.

Prof. Akinwumi said the punishment was to serve as deterrent to other Head-Teachers who are fond of breaching Government Policies .

While he asked the offending head teacher to hand over to the most senior assistant head teacher in the school, the SUBEB boss said he should henceforth be reporting at the SUBEB headquarters pending further determination of the case.

The Chairman also directed the erring head teacher to quickly refund all the money he has collected from the pupils for repayment to their parents.

He reiterated the commitment of Governor Biodun Oyebanji towards the development of basic education sector as well as provisions of various incentives to encourage the teachers and therefore warned against collection of unauthorized charges in the state public primary schools, adding that the free and compulsory education policy of the state government is still in place.
