Kano government suspends two teachers
The Kano State government has suspended two principals for negligence of duty.
They include principals of the French Bilingual College and Chinese Bilingual College in Kwankwaso, Madobi Local Government Area of the State.
Umar Haruna, the State Commissioner for Education, explained in a statement by the Ministry’s Director of Public Enlightenment, Balarabe Kiru, that the suspended principals were not in their respective schools when the team of take-up inspections paid a visit to monitor the commencement of the 2023–2024 first term school session.
According to the statement, the Commissioner approved the posting of Umar Sabo to sit-in as principal at the French Bilingual Collage and Isyaku Umar Abdullahi as sit-in principal at the Chinese Bilingual Collage Kwankwaso.
According to the statement, the inspection team led by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Hajiya Kubra Imam, discovered that students of the two colleges were not served food for Sunday night, and their breakfast for Monday was not ready up until the time of the visit.
The Commissioner expressed dismay over what he called unconcerned attitudes shown by the two principals and directed them to hand over the schools’ affairs to the new sit-in principals and report to the ministry pending an investigation.
The statement warned all school authorities to shun any act that would undermine the present administration’s effort to revive the education sector.
The Commissioner, according to the statement, commended the Principal of Government Girls College (WTC), Kano Kofar Famfo, and her counterpart at Government Girls Secondary School, Kwankwaso, for their dedication and compliance in making all the needed arrangements for the commencement of the 2023–2024 academic session.
The statement explained, “Students are so impressed with the way they were served food.
“Their turnout is very commendable, and the principals of the two schools made good efforts to make their school environment conducive.”
