In Benue: 256 dead teachers, others draw salary – SUBEB

The Chairman of Benue State Universal Basic Education Board, Matthew Mnyam, has said no fewer than 256 dead public primary school teachers and other undisclosed numbers of retired teachers were on the payroll of the state.

Mnyam made this disclosure on Friday in Makurdi, the state capital, while briefing journalists on the activities of his board.

The SUBEB boss, who said he was mandated by the state Governor, Samuel Ortom, to sanitise the board, revealed that on assumption of office he carried out verification exercise where he discovered the rot.

He also disclosed that some female primary school teachers who by marriage had resigned and left the state were still being paid monthly from the state.

Mnyam further said four directors of the board that were due for retirement were sent on three months’ pre-retirement vacation to pave the way for their subordinates.

He said one of the board staff in charge of payroll, who was caught inserting certain names on the payroll, was suspended while another staff was transferred for being unable to give an account of the assignment given to him.

He explained that all these achievements were done to revamp the public primary schools and bring back their lost glory to enable every parent and caregiver whose children were no longer attending schools to send them back to school.(Punch)
