Following the delay in the payment of staff of the Local education Authorities’ salaries in Bauchi State and the resultant restiveness created by the delay, Governor Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar has approved the immediate removal of four management staff of the Bauchi State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB.
Their withdrawal comes as the workers’ verification exercise comes to a climax with a clear manifestation of negligence of duty and uncultured behavior of the withdrawn management staff of the Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB.
A letter signed by the Head of the State Civil Service, Mr. Abdon Gin also says the affected management staff concealed some vital information to both the “new Chairman of the Board and some members of the Bauchi State House of Assembly while on oversight function”.
“This was pertaining to remittance of funds made to the Board for the payment of teachers’ salaries for which adequate funds were released by the Government for immediate payment to all the verified teachers under the Board”, Mr. Gin further explained.
The removal of the management staff therefore becomes pertinent considering the setback their actions have caused the Bauchi State Government’s commitment to ensure that all verified staff were paid their salary entitlements without delay.
The Head of Service, Mr. Abdon Gin advised all staff to ensure that they carry responsibilities assigned to them diligently and effectively as “doing otherwise will attract very severe consequences”.
