The Kwara State Government has tasked Principals of Senior Secondary Schools across the State to continue to contribute their quotas towards securing the future of students, as leaders that build future leaders.
The Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Hajia Sa’adatu Modibbo Kawu, stated this yesterday at the floating exercise, which marks the commencement of The West African Certificate Examination (WAEC) registration, with the Principals of Senior Secondary Schools across the State at Saint Anthony’s Secondary School, Ilorin.
Hajia Modibbo appreciated the unrelenting efforts of the Principals at ensuring good working relationship with the Ministry and improving the quality of education in the State, commending them for ensuring that only official fees are allowed in the schools.
She warned the principals to shun examination malpractices, saying whoever is found wanting will face the consequences of such act.
According to her, “I want to appreciate the Leadership of this body for the support the Ministry has always received from them. This is one of the reasons we are making progress as far as our schools are concerned.”
The Commissioner said the Ministry will not tolerate extra charges from any Principal apart from the one approved by the Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development, warning them against all acts that can dent their images during the examinations.
Hajia Modibbo also solicited the support of the Principals for the AbdulRazaq-led administration, which she said is wholeheartedly committed to the welfare of teachers and the citizens.
