Headmistress of viral Warri school girl suspended for collecting ‘Illegal exam Fees’ 1

Headmistress of Okotie-Eboh Primary School, Mrs. Vero Igbigwe, has been suspended following the viral video where little Success Adegor was sent home over her parents’ failure to pay her examination levies.

She was suspended on Monday when the Commissioner for Education, Barr. Chiedu Ebie, visited the school.

According to the commissioner, The head teacher couldn’t explain the alleged illegal collection of examination levies from the school students.

A statement by the commissioner explained why primary and secondary education in Delta remained free, insisting the head teacher had no right to impose any levy.

The commissioner said;

 “In my brief encounter with the Head Teacher this morning, there appeared to be numerous inconsistencies in her response on this issue as she was unable to categorically state who authorized her to impose the levies or fees which is in clear breach of the extant rules.

“Consequently I have directed the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) to suspend the Head Teacher pending the outcome of a formal enquiry into the issue of unauthorised levies/ and fees imposed by her in the School”

On concerns over infrastructural decay in the school, he said:

“Having discovered the dilapidated state of the infrastructure in the Schools, steps were immediately taken by the State Government, through the Ministry of Basic & Secondary Education, to carry out a phased renovation and upgrade of the infrastructural facilities beginning with Okotie Eboh Primary School II.

“It is important to place on record and for the avoidance of doubt that the Contract of the first phase was awarded on the 29th of December, 2018 and work has since commenced.”
