Mr Ugbala disclosed in the statement that the members of the board, headed by Uche Eze-Anyim, have turned blind eyes to certain fraudulent practices in the board’s payroll.
According to him, dead persons, retired and resigned persons as well as those who have secured other employments were still on payroll to the knowledge of the members who didn’t do anything to correct the fraudulent practice.
The Ebonyi Secondary Education Board is aimed at offering qualitative secondary education to ebonyi state children through consistent supervision of instructions and sustained provision of human and material resources geared towards developing skills, attitudes and potentials of the child for his survival in the society.
