The Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (APPS) in Edo state has suspended, indefinitely, its immediate past president, Bishop Opukeme Eseimokumor Godly, from participating in its activities.
The proprietors in a press statement by the Edo state President and Secretary of the association, Sir Enosakhare Ogbeide, and Prince Shaka Momodu, respectively, said the State Executive Council took the decision after reviewing the misrepresentation of Edo state and other alleged unwholesome activities by the erstwhile president.
According to the statement, a seven-man committee has been set up to investigate the suspended ex-president for financial transactions during his tenure as state chairman of the Association between 2010 and 2013.
Meanwhile, the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) has postponed, indefinitely, the South-south Education Summit scheduled to hold in July over what it termed the “present security situation in the country.”
NAPPS in a statement by the national vice-president and President South-South (NAPPS), Hon Martins Osakwe, said a new date for the summit would be announced in due course.
The statement, therefore, advised Ministries, Government Departments, Agencies (MDAs) and School Proprietors to disregard any request for sponsorship or participation fee, saying that such requests were personal and without authorisation.
