Kano Government Orders Immediate Suspension Of Three School Principals

The Kano State government has ordered the immediate suspension of three principals of public secondary schools for dereliction of duty.

The schools affected are G.G.S.S. Dawanau, G.G.S.S. Kwa, and G.A.S.S. Dawanau, all in the Dawakin Tofa local government area.

The State Commissioner for Education, Alh. Umar Haruna Doguwa, announced this shortly after visiting the schools between 9 and 10 a.m. today (Friday), where he found out that the affected principals had not reported to their duty posts.

According to the checks he conducted, all three officers have routinely absconded from work on Fridays for quite some time.

“This administration will not condone truancy, lateness, or any form of official misconduct; therefore, these principals are suspended forthwith”, he said.

The Commissioner further directed that new and competent principals be posted to the three schools immediately to ensure that academic activities are not disrupted.

Alh. Umar Doguwa also directed that four teachers at GGSS Kwa and two at GASS Dawanau be queried for truancy.

“The action of these principals and teachers depicts unseriousness. We are a serious government, and we will not allow uncommitted people to ruin our plans for education”, he warned.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner has directed that the principal of G.G.S.S. Harbau, Tsanyawa local government, be rewarded for her diligence.
