All may not be well with the Benue State Ministry of Education as the Executive Secretary Benue State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Pastor Emmanuel Aper today also turned in his resignation letter.
This resignation is coming at the heels of the resignation of the Executive Secretary of the Teaching Service Board (TSB), Dr. Wilfred Uji after a protracted disagreement with the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Dennis Ityavyar.
Although details of Pastor Emmanuel Aper’s resignation are sketchy, insider sources claim that the Pastor whose appointment is less than a year old, was also having skirmishes with Prof. Ityavyar over issues relating to financial matters of the Board.
According our source Pst. Aper had severally complained to those close to him of the Commissioner ‘s over bearing influence on his parastatal.
“The man is tired of Ityavyar who is always asking for money. you know the whole state is aware that there is money in SUBEB so he is under pressure from commissioner to remit something every month. As a principled pastor he has refused and the commissioner is angry with him. The man has decided to return to his former assignment the pulpit”. Our source said.
It is worthy of note that there has been an ongoing controversy in the Ministry of Education where the outgone Executive Secretary of SUBEB and the Commissioner of Education are embroiled in a financial scandal.
The Commissioner who has been accused by the resigned Executive Secretary is also widely accused of amassing wealth in order to pursue a widely acclaimed succession dream of taking over from the present governor in 2023.
