Three principals of public secondary schools in Kano State have been ordered to be suspended immediately for neglect of duty.
In a statement on Friday, the state director of public education for the Ministry of Education, Ameen Yassar, confirmed the development.
Government Girls Secondary School Dawanau, Government Girls Secondary School Kwa, and Government Arabic Secondary School, all located in the state’s Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area, Kano state were among the impacted institutions.
Yassar claims that Umar Doguwa, the state commissioner for education, made the announcement of the suspension soon after visiting the schools on Friday between the hours of 9 and 10 a.m. and learning that the affected principals had not yet reported to their job positions.
“According to the checks he did, all three of the policemen had been missing from work on Fridays for a while now.
He declared, “This administration will not tolerate truancy, tardiness, or any other form of official misconduct, so these principals are suspended immediately.”
In order to prevent disruptions to academic activities, Yassar added that the commissioner further ordered that new and capable principals be placed in the three schools right now.
Doguwa also instructed that two instructors at the GASS Dawanau and four at the GGSS Kwa be questioned for tardiness, the speaker continued.
“These principals’ and instructors’ behavior shows a lack of seriousness. We are a serious government, and we won’t let irresponsible people sabotage our objectives for education, he said.
In the meantime, the commissioner had ordered that the G.G.S.S. Harbau Principal in the Tsanyawa Local Government Area be honored for her hard work. # Kano
