GANTA, October 13 (LINA) – The Nimba County Education Officer (CEO) has expelled a senior student of the Sanniquillie Central High School in Sanniquellie City for slapping the Principal of the school, Mr. Guanue Paye.
According to a release, while on his classroom routine check, Principal Paye saw student Sneijdor Dolo, who failed in the 11th Grade last academic year sitting in the 12th Grade wearing a necktie, and asked him out of the class.
The release said after being asked by the Principal to leave the class, student Dolo out of anger walked to the Principal and slapped him in the face twice and walked out.
Following the action of student Dolo, the Principal filed a complaint to the County Education Officer who immediately set up an investigation committee, comprising PTA Chairmen, four District Education Officers, some members of the county school board and school administrators to look into the matter.
During the investigation, four of student Dolo's classmates testified that he committed the act.
At the end of the investigation, the committee found student Dolo guilty and recommended to the CEO that he be expelled from the Nimba County School System.
According to the release, the recommendation was endorsed by the CEO who is now calling on all schools in the county not to admit student Sneijdor Dolo as student.
“I Moses Saye Dologbay, CEO of Nimba County, do hereby sanction the decision of the investigation board to serve as deterrent against misbehavior in our school system. We are therefore calling on all schools throughout the length and breadth of Nimba county, both public and private, not to accept student Sneijdor Dolo in their schools,” the release added.
Meanwhile, student Dolo has admitted slapping his principal but said he acted out of anger and is therefore appealing for forgiveness.
