It would be recalled that, some weeks ago, the principal of a secondary school in Ogun State, Mrs Olufunke Aladeojebi, made the headlines after she allegedly conducted virginity tests on female students in the school.
The development raised a lot of dust and a committee wa set up to look into the situation. Following the report of the committee, the Ogun State government has directed the principal of Ajuwo High School, in Ifo Local Government Area to undergo psychiatric test to determine her mental state. The government, in a statement signed by the state Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Mr Segun Odubela, said this after considering an appraisal report submitted by a three-man panel headed by Alhaji Ambaliu Ishola, Permanent Secretary of the ministry.
The commissioner accepted the recommendation that Mrs Aladeojebi should be relieved of her appointment, if found to be of unsound mind, while she should be demoted from grade level 16 to grade level 15 and recalled back to the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) headquarters if found to be sane. The government also accepted the panel’s recommendation that the two health workers who collaborated with the principal in carrying out the virginity test should be referred to the Ministry of Health for disciplinary action.
The affected students are also to be referred to the State General Hospital for proper medical check-up and counseling, while Odubela and chairman, TESCOM, Ms Bukunola Onabanjo, had been directed to meet with and address members of the Parents Teachers Association (PTA), staff and students of the school, so as to douse the tension generated by the issue.

Exemption Of ASUU From IPPIS Temporary — Ngige
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said that the Federal Government’s proposal to exempt members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) is a temporary measure.
He explained on Saturday that this measure was pending the conclusion of the integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).
Ngige who clarified the position of the government team during Friday’s negotiation with ASUU said that it was not true that the government had abandoned IPPIS or that ASUU should not be on IPPIS.
“I think it is better because a lot of people are quoting us out of context saying that we abandoned the IPPIS and that we said they should not be on IPPIS, it is not true.
“What we said in the meeting and what we agreed was that in the interim for the transition period that UTAS is being tested by NITDA and the Office of National Security Adviser for cybersecurity. For those transition period, ASUU members that are not yet on IPPIS will be paid through the platform with which they were paid the President’s compassionate COVID-19 payment done to them between the months of February and June.
“That platform is a hybrid platform between IPPIS and MINPSI platform for the transition period. That was what was used, it’s a hybrid.”
