Oshiomhole sacks 20 teachers for absenteeism

TWENTY teachers of three schools who were absent from their duty posts when Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole paid unscheduled visits to the schools have been dismissed.

Oshiomhole who disclosed this during an unscheduled visit to Asoro Primary School, Emokpae Model Primary School, Western Boys High School, George Idah Model School and Esonere Primary School in Benin City also ordered deductions from the salaries of some teachers who got to their schools after the 8 a.m. resumption time

The governor who decried the lackadaisical attitude of some teachers to work said: The state government has provided suitable environment in the schools, the teachers are paid good wages and inducement allowances. These beautiful classrooms are useless if teachers dont teach the students.
Oshiomhole was at the Asoro Primary School by 7:45 a.m. He went through the teachers attendance register and discovered that names of teachers who were not present in school were signed in.
He then directed that adequate punishment be meted out to those who filled in the names of the absent teachers.
