UBE Chairman, Accused Of Withholding Teachers’ Promotion Arrears

When the federal government of Nigeria has, without time, enjoined its citizens to live clean and fairly with all and sundry by living up to expectation in every dealing with the society while carrying out their constitutional obligation, the chairman of Universal Basic Education Board, Orutemeka Ali and Board member 1, Mr. Lucky Worlu has been alleged to be withholding junior secondary principals’ promotion arrears to the tune of N150,000 (One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira) paid to the UBE Board since 2011, including the teachers imprest arrears which amount to thousands, of naira N50,000 (Fifty Thousand Naira) for each junior secondary school principal per month.
Our source hinted that the imprest arrears of the junior secondary schools principal have not been paid since July 2006, while it has been indicated that the total amount due the principals had been paid into the board for execution which the Board chairman and his co member, Mr. Lucky Worlu have refused to see to the payment of the principals imprest and promotion arrears.
We also gathered that the senior secondary schools principals had been paid by the Board without delay, leaving the junior secondary school principals crying for theirs, which the chairman of the board and his collaborators have refused to pay the helpless junior principals.
Our source also disclosed that the total a mount meant for the junior secondary school principals is believed to be put in a fixed deposit to the detriment of the suffering junior secondary school principals.
In a bid to service lots of their needs, the junior secondary school principals are appealing to the state executive to come to their aid as to impress upon the chairman and his collaborators to pay them their imprest and promotion monies so that they could take care of their needs.
We gathered that the situation has got to a level where it has attracted the attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) which is said to have commended investigation into the matter.
Most of the teachers are on their way to retirement and would want to enjoy their hard-earned money in a more relaxed atmosphere than begging for what is rightly theirs. ###
