Osun Suspends 5 Secondary School Principals
Five school principals of the Baptist High School, Adeeke Iwo, have been suspended by the Osun State Government.
The suspended school principals were accused of poor productivity, ineffective leadership and dereliction of duty.
The Executive Chairman, Osun Education Quality Assurance and Morality Enforcement Agency, Dr Isiaka Owoade made the disclosure in Osogbo.
"Following my unscheduled visit to Baptist High School Iwo, all the five principals of the school have been suspended with immediate effect for poor productivity, ineffective leadership and dereliction of duty.
"Records showed this as a failing school with extremely poor performance in external examination with a pass rate at 2.8% in 2016 and 0% in 2017 of candidates earning 5+ credits including English and Mathematics.
"Between 2012 and 2015, a total of 1688 students passed out of the school and only 13 passed"
"This is woeful. My responsibility is to ensure that our students are properly taught to ensure that they pass their examinations," he said.
While warning that poor productivity would no longer be tolerated in Osun schools, Owoade said, "The few school principals that think their students should be punished for the inadequacies that we currently experience are advised to have a change of heart.
"I enjoin our principals and teachers as major stakeholders to cooperate with us to achieve this objective.
"I thank the majority of our principals that are hardworking and have the interest of their pupils at heart, not minding the challenges confronting the system at the moment."
