Following the suspension of six teachers for allegedly engaging some
students in private farming, teachers in Ekiti State have appealed to
Governor Ayodele Fayose to temper justice with mercy and reinstate
their affected colleagues.

They also expressed appreciation to the governor for offering immediate appointment
to the husband of one them, Mrs Ayodele Taiwo, for returning a sum
of N101, 000 that was wrongly paid into her account by
the state government .

The teachers, under the auspices of Academic Staff Union of Secondary
Schools, in a statement by its Chairman, Com. Sola Adigun,
agreed that what the affected teachers did contravened the civil
service rule and Ekiti State Child Rights Act 2013.

Adigun pleaded with Fayose to use the suspension as a
warning, assuring that such a sordid scenario won’t repeat itself
again among their colleagues.

The ASUSS boss said Fayose’s rewarding of Mrs Ayodele for displaying
honesty would further serve as impetus for other teachers in the state
to be dedicated to duties and be patriotic .
