Oyo SUBEB Suspends Head Teachers for Extortion

Oyo State Government has ordered the immediate suspension of 13 primary school Head Teachers, two Assistant Head Teachers and a classroom teacher for extortion and various misconducts.

The government gave the directive through the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Adeniran, following an inspection tour of some schools in the Ibadan metropolis. 

Dr. Adeniran said that apart from the illegal collection of fees from pupils, the suspended teachers were also found culpable of insubordination and refusal to comply with posting instructions.

The SUBEB boss maintained that the government would not tolerate iniquity and gross indiscipline among teachers, noting that the Board suspended the erring teachers due to established facts.

According to Dr. Adeniran, the suspended teachers would face a disciplinary committee set up by the Board.

It would be recalled that the Oyo State Government, after announcing free and qualitative education in May 2019, approved the payment of N526 Million as running grants to Primary and Secondary schools for the first term of 2019/2020 session.

The schools are expected to submit records of disbursements to the State Government at the end of each term.
