Osun state government has suspended the Principal of Community High School, Eripa, Mr. T. A. Afolabi, along with some teachers for allegedly the names of six candidates into the school’s Senior Secondary School certificate examination list.
A news item monitored on Osun State Broadcasting Corporation by our correspondent, on Wednesday, revealed that the authorities were caught unawares by the Deputy Governor, Mrs. Titi Laore-Tomori, who paid an unscheduled visit to the school.
Laoye-Tomori, who ordered the suspension of the teachers, said the candidates were not officially registered for the certificate examination.
She warned that she would pay unscheduled visit to other schools and take appropriate sanctions against Principals and teachers who engage in unethical practices.
Also suspended were the registrar of of the school, Mr. A. Adepoju, and two headteachers whose names were given as Mr. Olatunji and Mr. Akanbi.
The Deputy Governor, who scrutinised the list personally, decried the alleged action of the tutors.
She said the State government remained committed to the reformation of education in the state, adding that the abysmal level of students’ performance would change given the ongoing reforms in the education sector.
