Ogun Principal Diverts 14 N-Power Teachers To Own School


In a daring show of disloyalty and defiance, the Principal of Asero High School, Abeokuta, Ogun State, Mrs. A. Ogunsade has diverted about 14 N-power teachers sent to the school by the federal government as part of its N-power teachers program to meet the shortage of qualified teachers in public schools across the country- to her own school, Royal Height School, Obantoko, Abeokuta.

This newspaper gathered that she has also diverted the corps members sent to Asero High School to her own school. Competent sources said there is a shortage of teachers across many subjects at Asero High School, and many classes are conducted in makeshift tents under the scorching sun.

A teacher who craved anonymity for fear of being victimised said,” Federal government sent some teachers, about 14 in number to us, because of shortage of teachers, but our principal diverted them, including NYSC members to her own school at Obantoko, yet, it is federal government that are paying their salaries”, saying the Principal has become a dictator

Efforts by this reporter to get her own side of the story failed as she was said to have travelled out of town.
