Cross River State commissioner for Education, Professor Offiong Offiong has warned principals in the state secondary schools against illegal collection of fees from students or risk sanctions.

Speaking at an interactive session with public secondary school principals in Ikom, the Commissioner emphasized the need for principals to complement the State Government’s massive infrastructure development of schools with effective monitoring of teaching and learning in their various schools rather than engage in illegal acts capable of robbing them of their jobs.

Offiong said that anyone caught defrauding students in the name of collecting fees for the government will be properly sanctioned.

He urged the principals to be serious with their jobs to enable the Ministry achieve the State Government’s visions for the education sector.

According to Offiong, Cross River State scored 56.3% in the last WAEC examinations, which indicates a remarkable improvement in performance, adding that all stakeholders need to work assiduously to improve on that performance without examination malpractice.

The commissioner encouraged the principals to establish maintenance committees as well as taking up the initiative of establishing old students associations with a view to generating resources that will go a long way to supports government’s efforts at transforming the school system.

In her remark, the Chairman, State Secondary Education Board, Dr. (Mrs.) Sylvia Atsu charged the teachers in the state public secondary schools to be dedicated and hard work; stressing that there is a reward and sanction system put in place by the board in line with the vision of the commissioner and the state government.
