Other of their grievances against the Ag. Principal includes prolonged absence from duty, neglecting responsibilities, poor academic management that is detrimental to students’ education, as well as usurping duties properly delegated to the Vice Principal (Administration), Examination Committee, and School Accounting Services.

The protest letter which was signed by the President, Comrade Uche Maximus Chibuikem and General Secretary, Immaculata Anyanwu respectively said it was due to the grave concerns raised regarding her leadership and management of the school that compelled them to seek her removal, even as the union requested a response regarding the actions government takes to address the students’ concerns.
