NAPPS suspends chapter chairman, secretary over misconduct

NAPPS suspends chapter chairman, secretary over misconduct

The National Association of Proprietors of Pri­vate Schools (NAPPS), Nasarawa State, has suspend­ed its Karu Local Government Chapter’s chairman, Mr Abra­ham Agada, and secretary, Mallam Illiyasu Salisu, for al­leged acts of misconduct.
The state president of the as­sociation, Mrs Charity Docas Manzuche, who made this known during an emergency congress held at the local gov­ernment, said Agada would serve four months suspension for abuse of office as well as sabotaging NAPPS by writ­ing a petition against the state executive and reporting the as­sociation to the state Ministry of Education.
The letter of suspension of the duo, was read by the NAPPS assistant general secre­tary, Nasarawa State, Mr Har­rison Eze, before the congress adoption.
The letter stressed that Aga­da was unable to remit the state dues for three consecu­tive years, while other offenc­es were non-compliance to the decision of state executive of NAPPS, and expanded exec­utive meetings, where he and his secretary are members, in­subordination to the state, and gross abuse of power, as well as inciting and introducing ‘thuggery’ into the association.
The state president narrat­ed that the suspended chair­man has being called severally to order by the state executive of the association and stake­holders for corrections but all fell on deaf ears.
She disclosed that on De­cember 6, 2016, Agada and his secretary petitioned the state executive of NAPPS to Ministry of Education Nasara­wa State, adding that the duo wrote another letter and sus­pended state officials from his chapter of which the constitu­tion does not guarantee him such powers.
Commenting on the sus­pension, the National Vice President of NAPPS, North Central zone, Mr Joseph Nwoke, stressed that in lead­ership there is hierarchy and such status must be main­tained. He disclosed that the petitions were carefully read by him and without doubt the suspended chairman breached the constitution of the associ­ation, hence the need for the sanction.
The suspended chairman is to handover to his depu­ty, Mrs Bassay Mary, for four months pending the outcome of the eight-man committee set up to investigate their ac­tions.
