Teacher's recruitment forms are free don't pay anyone for it- Gov Fintiri

Governor  Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa has warned principals of Secondary Schools in the state against extorting parents over examination and school fees.

He stressed his administration had already paid for WAEC and NECO examinations for students of public schools that sat  for the 2020 examinations and therefore no Principal should demand for such payment.

“I  received a report that WAEC on Monday 2, October, 2020  has released the 2020 examination results, but Adamawa state results were withheld for alleged non payment of 2017 Supervisors’ allowances.

He said that there was no justification for WAEC  to punish the students who sat for the 2020 examination  for the offence  committed in 2017, adding that government had already released money to settle the alleged supervisors’ allowances for WAEC to release the results.

“I want to make it categorically clear that no Parent or guardian whose children are in public schools across the state  should pay a dime to any school principal.

 ”Government had already paid NECO and WAEC Examination fees for all students and our administration has declared free education in the state”, Fintiri said.

Commenting  on the ongoing selling of Teachers’ recruitment forms, the governor directed that all the forms should be given free and anybody found selling the forms would be dealt with accordingly.

“On the ongoing Teachers  recruitment, we are going to give equal opportunity and treatment to  every local government area, he said, adding “I have directed that the teachers recruitment forms be given free of charge to all interested applicants across the state”.
