Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, on Monday dismissed four secondary school teachers and sanctioned one other for absenteeism and lateness.
The governor, who paid an unscheduled visit to some schools in Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State, said the attitude of some of the teachers was not encouraging, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
While calling for support from the teachers, the governor said his quest to reposition public schools was not negotiable.
He said teachers must look beyond earning their salaries and bringing up children that would be useful to the state and the country.
This is really impressive. It seems harsh but impressive. Someone needs to knock senses into the heads of Nigerian civil servants!
