PTA Teachers Apologize To Anambra State Govt. and Education Commissioner, Prof. Chuma-Udeh

PTA teachers in Anambra State Schools have appolgised to the Government of Anambra State and Education Commissioner, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, for insubordination and refusal to key in to the ongoing teachers’ recruitment exercise in Anambra State.

The unreserved apology was tendered on behalf of the PTA teachers by Mr. E. E. Egbo, while leading a delegation of the the group, who were before the Anambra State House of Assembly Committee on Public Petitions, to present a petition on alleged unlawful termination of appointment.

In a reaction to inquiries from the members of the State Assembly Committee on Public Petitions, the Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh stated that the Government of Anambra State, gave a directive for PTA teachers in the State to key in to the ongoing teachers’ recruitment exercise in line with the continuous teacher upgrade program of the present administration.

The Education Commissioner, Prof. Chuma-Udeh who appreciated the Assembly members for the knowledge and maturity with which they carry out legislative business of the State, stated that no record of PTA teachers was handed over to her on assumption of office. Commissioner Chuma-Udeh informed that when a delegation of the affected teachers approached her on the matter, she advised them to heed the directive of the State Government, to enable qualified ones among them get recruited.

The Education Commissioner however regretted that rather than do the needful, some of the affected teachers resorted to all kinds of nefarious activities, ranging from insurbodination, the use of social media against the Government, to physical disruption of activities designed to recruit teachers that would train Anambra children in line with the requirements of the digital era.
