AKURE – The Ondo state government has removed Mrs. Abiola Fashina as the principal of Ijo Mimo Oluwa High School, Akure over alleged misappropriation of part of funds meant for the payment of NECO examination in 2020 and alleged involvement in examination malpractices in the school.

It was gathered that Mrs Fasina was also removed over alleged complicity in examination malpractices which was reported to have been the practice in the school over the past five years.

A source said the principal was directed to be reporting at the office of the Ondo state teaching commission, TESCOM till further notice.

Similarly the Permanent Secretary, ministry of education, science and technology,Mrs Lola Amuda has also ordered that the executive of Parent Teacher Association, PTA in Ijo Mimo Oluwa High school led by Pastor Ajibola Owolanke be dissolved with immediate effect while interim Executive members be set up.

It was recalled that there was a report of serious crisis as well as allegations and counter allegations between Mrs Abiola Fashina and the chairman, Parent Teacher Association, PTA, Pastor Ajibola Owolanke over how examination invigilators were being induced in the school to all students pass their WAEC and NECO.

It was also reported that the crises have also caused division among the staff as well as parents and have drastically affected academic and social activities of the school.

The lingering crisis had made Mrs Fasina to be under serious fire over allegations of misappropriation of part of funds meant for the payment of NECO examination in 2020.

Mrs Fashina was also alleged of illegally collecting money from students ,a step that has now led to uproar in the school from parents.

According to Report, the principal who was deployed to the school late 2019 had allegedly mismanaged about a sum of #439,600 meant for the NECO registration of the SS3 students sitting for the 2020 examination.

A source said “The woman has been removed and had been asked to be reporting at the office of the TESCOM and I doubt if she would be deployed to any school because there have been reports of highhandedness against her at schools she had headed in the past before being deployed to Ijo Mimo Oluwa High school.

“ the steps taken so far by the ministry would bring sanity into the system in the school.” The source added.

Some teachers who had turned  themselves to gods would also be transferred from the school.

Interim Executive members have been set up to run the affairs of the association in the school pending the time of another election, which I know won’t be long.

The ministry also realised that the PTA Excos in the school had become something else and the best thing was to send them away.

In fact, there is a kind of division among the state leadership of PTA over the matter. The state chairman seems not happy about the removal but what could he do ? ” the source said.
