The Nasarawa State Government has dismissed a resolution taken by the House of Assembly urging it to reinstate the suspended management of the state College of Education, Akwanga.
The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Tanko Al-Makura on Public Affairs, Abdulhamid Kwarra, disclosed this to journalists in Lafia, the state capital.
Kwarra said: “It is necessary for the Nasarawa State Government to respond to the prevailing political situation occasioned by the special sitting of the House of Assembly urging the reinstatement of the suspended management of the College of Education, Akwanga, which government considered as an issue of urgent public interest.
“In view of the above, the government hereby reiterates its eelier suspension order, which shall continue to be enforced on the suspended management.”
The Nasarawa State House of Assembly recently passed a resolution at its special sitting that the state government should reinstate the suspended management of the College of Education, led by the Provost, Esther Amu-Nnadi.
The resolution was sequel to the House Committee on Education’s report that the management team of the institution was suspended by the government following N25m loan it received from UBA Plc for the completion of the school’s ICT centre and library.
The House Committee discovered during it findings that the loan was applied by the former Provost, Titi Monde, who consequently cancelled it after her appointment as the Commissioner for Information by Governor Tanko Al-Makura.
