ACC TO INVESTIGATE EDUCATION MINISTRY

  • ACC bOSS

The Le500, 000,000.00 (Five hundred million Leones) Government is allegedly paying for the monthly radio teaching programme through the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology is sham, it emerged last night.

The objective of the radio teaching programme for pupils lost its credence when the Education Ministry was caught in the closet by one of its partners.

Our sources explained that there is an unwavering cabal within the Ministry enriching themselves much to the detriment of the hapless teachers.

Some of the teachers involved in the teaching process attempted to boycott the process, but were stiffly resisted by the Ministry. But the decision by some of them to boycott the process, The Spectator is told, was due to poor incentives given them.

Our sources say the Ministry of Education should account for millions of Leones disbursed to it by donors and other stakeholders in the country for the smooth running of the programme.

Many teachers have also urged the Anti-Corruption Commission to urgently investigate their superiors as the situation continues to stink.

It could be recalled that there was serious furore between the Education Ministry and one of its implementing partners over the radio and television learning programme which the ACC should have intervened to investigate, but its continuous silence over the issue not only smacks suspect but also speaks volumes of injustice in the country.

Many concerned educationists and well-meaning citizens are calling on the anti-graft agency to intervene in what the teachers have called blatant corruption in the Education Ministry.

Meanwhile, The Spectator can authoritatively reveal that we have in our custody names of some senior employees of the Education Ministry that are receiving double salaries at the end of every month.
