The Director of Schools Services in the State Technical Schools Board, Mrs. Justina Ita has tasked teacher to be more committed to their duties.
Mrs Ita who is covering the duties of the Permanent Secretary led Management team from the Board on tour of Technical Schools in the state.
She enjoined teaching and non-teaching staff to tackle their jobs with zeal in line with the DAKKADA philosophy of the Emmanuel administration.
Mrs Ita explained that the tour was to ascertain the level at which teachers and students have resumed classes after the Christmas holidays.
The Director warned that in the 2016 school session lackadaisical attitude will not be tolerated by the Board and appealed to teachers to teach the students with clear conscience as they also have their wards tutored by teachers in other schools.
At the Mbioto Technical College few students and teachers had reported for classes though there was no sign of any activity.
The PTA Chairman who was present at the time commended the Board for taking over the management of the school, promising that the community will work hand in hand with the Board for the betterment of the school.
At the Technical College Ikot Akata, the turnout of teachers and students was impressive and teaching had already commenced in spite of the fact that it was the first day of resumption.
At Abak, Ewet and Ikpa Technical Colleges, the turnout was equally commendable as Teachers and Students had already begun the term with excitement.
At the Technical College Oron though the turn was encouraging the Principal complained about laxity by some staff, saying that she did not even know some of them because of continuous absence from duty.
