Three students from the Arab Secondary School for Government Girls (GGASS) in Gusau were suspended for cooking in the school home.
These are female students who are taking exams for the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) 2020.
The suspension of the three students at the state boarding school in Zamfara, according to the state education ministry, was seen as a deterrent to other students and to preserve the dignity of the school principal.
The state education commissioner, Dr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, agreed to have the three undisciplined students suspended.
He reiterated that all forms of recalcitrant behavior by students would face stricter measures as, under his supervision, he would not allow indiscipline in schools.
“These students broke the rules not to cook in the hostels. Cooking is completely forbidden in our schools. The SBMC recommended three weeks, which were later shortened to two weeks, and the ministry approved the suspension of the three students, ”he said.
When asked if he knew what negative impact the suspension of writing from WASSCE would have on the mental health of the three students concerned, he said he was unaware that the suspension was preventing students from taking over three subjects in the Writing WAEC exam.
“The problem with students missing the WAEC exam is not true, I only hear it from you. I doubt it didn’t happen in Zamfara state. According to all the information I got, the three students did not miss an exam due to the two-week suspension, ”he said.
The subjects that the nameless students are said to have missed so far include political education, physics practice and animal husbandry.
