Detractors behind ‘Extortion’ Allegations against Me – Ezewu

Delta State Commissioner for Secondary Education Mrs Rose Ezewu has debunked giving instruction to School Principals on the purchase of her portrait and that of the Governor.

Speaking during an interaction with journalists in Asaba on Tuesday, Ezewu said detractors were behind the extortion allegations against her.

She said; “I didn’t produce portrait for anybody to sell. I remember querying a Principal at Ughelli for using a very shabby picture of the Commissioner in his office.

“And I said its not good enough that they should try and change it and I told him I will send my original portrait to him to enable them print and replace the one they had.

“As Commissioner for Secondary Education, I don’t accept money from anybody for any matter. I am doing my job as prescribed to me and we setup an education taskforce to ensure proper monitoring of our schools.

“We have over 490 secondary schools across Delta State. So effective monitoring and supervision, I put a taskforce in place to assist.

“They have a mandate to checkmate teachers to ensure that they are doing their work. There is a standing directive that there should be morning and afternoon assembly in schools”.

Commissioner for Education, Mrs Rose Ezewu.

“As the new President of ANCOPSS Delta State, I Christian Orakpo Ahweyevu make bold to write on behalf of all members that there was never a time that ANCOPSS Delta State took such a decision because we have never experienced extortion of any kind from the Hon. Commissioner. We are in good working relationship with her.
