MAKURDI – In what appears a renewed clampdown on perpetrators of examination malpractices in Benue State, no fewer than 17 school principals have been sacked by the state government for aiding and abetting examination malpractices in in the state.
The sacked school principals would also be made to face disciplinary actions for their complicity in the said act.
The commissioner for education, Mr. Benjamin T. Ashaver said this during an interactive session with newsmen in Makurdi to mark his one year in office.
Ashaver stressed that the action of government would serve as deterrent to other heads of institution in the state who were in the habit of encouraging misconducts and cheating during examinations in the state.
The Commissioner also intimated that the Benue State government would soon embark on the massive recruitment of over one thousand teachers to boost teaching in both primary and post primary schools in the state.
