Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has inaugurated a six-member newly reconstituted Post Primary Schools Management Board (PPSMB) with a charge to the members to arrest the decline in discipline in secondary schools in the state.
The board members are Barr. Nestor Ezeme, Chairman, Messrs Obi Kama and Clement Inyaba members, Mrs. Obiageli Theresa Igwesi and Mrs. Veronica Ezeu- gwu are part-time members with Mrs. Favour Ugwuanyi the Permanent Secretary of the board as Secretary.
It was an occasion when the chairman of the new school board called on Governor Ugwuanyi to declare a state of emergency on computer education in the secondary school system in the state in view of the obvious lack of computer literacy among the greater population of the students.
Addressing the gathering on the occasion of the inauguration of the board members at the Government House, Enugu, Governor Ugwuanyi enjoined them “to instill in the teachers and other workers, a new sense of discipline, diligence and responsibility that should reflect on the performance and character of their students”.
The governor warned that “government would no longer tolerate inefficiency, redundancy, nonchalance and any unnecessary but harmful squabbles and intrigues both in the board and in schools”.
In his words, “we would therefore in this regard expect an instant and significant improvement in the performance of our children in WAEC, NECO, JAMB and other external examinations.”
