Nasarawa government suspends school principal, two other staff members for flogging students

The Nasarawa state government’s education ministry has suspended the principal and two other staff of Government Science School, Nasarawa Eggon, in Nasarawa state over severe punishment melted on female students who resumed late.


Leadership reports that the principal, the compound master and the staff who posted the video of the punishment on the social media were suspended till further notice.
The state commissioner for education, Tijjani Aliyu Ahmed confirmed that the teachers were suspended over the brutal beating of female students for resuming late.

Ahmed said the video of the punishment which went viral on social media is an embarrassment to the state government.
He announced that corporal punishment is now banned in the public schools in the state.

“Corporal punishment is not permissible in our public schools from now henceforth”.
“If you watch the video you will understand what I mean, is completely cruelty to female students especially beaten on the back”.
“We suspended the principal, compound master and a teacher because the class teacher posted the video clip on net,” he stated.

Some of the affected students, Joyce Joshua and Ugochukwu James, said they resumed late due to the ongoing farmers/herdsmen crisis in Benue state.
Ugochukwu said she tried to contact the school to inform them of her late resumption, but to no avail.
It was previously reported that the Kaduna state government recently gave the 21,000 teachers who failed the much
talked-about competence test an opportunity to re-apply.

The formerly sacked teachers were told that they can now take part in an ongoing recruitment exercise.
Reports say that about 12,000 of the sacked teachers have reapplied, although some others are yet to follow suit.

Governor Nasir El-Rufai, in his speech to the chairmen of 23 local government councils at a meeting explained that the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) is on a recruitment exercise that is open to take in formerly sacked teachers who are willing to re-apply.
