From Pwanagba Agabus, Jos
Following allegations that the Principal of Federal Government College, Jos, Mr Mohammed Manko, had immoral acts in the college, the Federal Ministry of Education has reportedly transferred him out of the state.
Manko was reportedly transferred to the FCT Zonal Inspectorate Service, Abuja. Jubilations reportedly greeted the development within and outside the college community.
A reliable source who spoke with The Dream Daily on condition of anonymity on
Thursday in Jos disclosed that one Mrs Dinatu Asani of the Federal Zonal Inspectorate Service, Jos has been posted to replace him.
It would be recalled that the embattled principal was widely reported in the media to have impregnated one of his students, a 17-year-old final year pupil.
According to the source, Manko’s transfer was sequel to a petition written to the education ministry by the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) of the college.
The PTA had in a petition signed by Barr. Jonathan Mawiyau, Chairman, Investigation Panel of the PTA, and addressed to the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, threatened to pull out their wards if the randy principal was not removed from the college.
Mr. Habila Mutla, who is the College’s PTA Chairman, confirmed the transfer of the principal, which he described as “right step at the right time”.
Some teachers in the college, who spoke with The Dream Daily expressed satisfaction with the decision of the ministry. One of them said: ‘‘This is indeed the handiwork of God, who has heard our cries and answered us at this crucial moment; we are so grateful to Him”.
