Ebonyi lifts suspension of principals, teachers

16:09 07/08/2012 Ebonyi -  Mr Ndubuisi Chibueze-Agbo, the Ebonyi Commissioner for Education, on Tuesday lifted the suspension of some principals and teachers who were sanctioned for indiscipline and fraud.

The officers were found guilty of impersonation, insubordination, maladministration and fraud, during the last academic year in the state.

Chibueze-Agbo told newsmen in Abakaliki that the affected teachers and principals were recalled in the spirit of togetherness.

 ``In the spirit of togetherness and the needed synergy, I hereby lift all but one of the suspension orders issued in the last academic year.

``But Mr Israel Aluu, who collected money above the approved fee for the registration of the 2011 WAEC and NECO examination and did not register many of the students for the examination, remains suspended.

 ``Fraudulent activities, truancy and acts of insubordination have been exposed and courageously punished.

 ``I will continue to discharge the assignments of the ministry within the ambits of the law.

 ``No amount of threat or blackmail from those enemies of education will deter me from moving the education sector to a greater height,” he said.

According to the commissioner, the 222 approved secondary schools across the three senatorial zones of the state will soon receive adequate infrastructure.
