Listen to article

Academic and Non-Academic staff of the Imo State College of Education, Ihitte Uboma Local Government Area of Imo State, on Friday staged a peaceful protest in the school where they demanded the removal of the College Provost, Boniface Ashiegbu.

The Eastern Updates reports that the protesters, who displayed placards with various inscriptions, stormed the state secretariat office of the Imo State Commissioner for Education, in Owerri, to register their grievances.

Speaking with journalists, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the College Kingsley Anyiam, who led the protest, said their demand for the removal of Ashiegbu was informed by his lack of requisite qualifications to be the provost.

They also accused Ashiegbu of gross abuse of office and some administrative infractions.

According to him, ‘One of the reasons the school has not been accredited since inception, having churned out graduates, who left the school without authentic certificates, is because he lacks requisite qualifications to be the provost.

‘Apart from the fact that Ashiegbu is not qualified, he has been running the school down by the way he manages funds that come into the school, keeping most to himself without distributing to various departmental heads.’

When the College Provost, Asiegbu for his reactions, he said all the allegations against him by the protesters were complete fallacy and should be disregarded.

He went on to clarify that contrary to their claims, he graduated from the University of Port Harcourt with Ph.D, in 2012.

He also debunked their claims with regards to the welfare of the students emphasising that that there is light and water in the students’ hostel and that anyone who wishes to confirm his claims can simply visit the school to make their own enquiries.
