Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi on Tuesday sacked the Chairman of the State Secondary Education Board (SEB) Dr. Uche Eze Anyim and other members over alleged fraudulent practices.

Recall that Umahi had recently suspended the chairman of FADAMA in the state, Dr. Cletus Nwakpu, indefinitely, over the same fraudulent practices.

Umahi made this known in a statement by the Secretary to the State Government/Coordinating Commissioner, Dr. Kenneth Ugbala in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

The statement reads in part: “The Governor of Ebonyi State Dr. David Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE, has approved the dissolution of the Secondary Education Board (SEB), Ebonyi State with immediate effect.

“The dissolution is as a result of the fraudulent practices discovered in the administration and management of the Board, where dead persons, persons who have resigned and those that have secured employment in other places, are still in the payroll of the Board and to the full knowledge of some members of the Board.

“Consequently, the Chairman and members of the dissolved Board are directed to handover all government property in their possessions to the Secretary to the State Government and Coordinating Commissioner before the close of work on Tuesday 23rd March 2021.

“In a similar vein, and in the effort to restore sanity in the Board, Government hereby directs the immediate redeployment of all Heads of Departments of the Board to other MDAs.

“A committee has been set up to conduct a comprehensive and thorough staff audit in the Board and submit a report for further necessary action,” he said.
