Success Adegor broke the internet last week when she captured in a video complaining bitterly for being sent home by her school management due to her parents’ inability to pay her school fees.
Mrs. Vero Igbigwe, the headmistress of Okotie-Eboh Primary School 1, Sapele Local Government of the state, has been suspended by the Delta State Government. The suspension is linked to the viral video of Success
In the viral video, Success said she preferred being beaten and allowed to stay in school to being sent home. Visibly angry Success had said in pidgin “I never pay, no be say I no go pay o, dem go dey pursue person instead of make dem flog person,” expressing her dissatisfaction as she walked home.
However, the Delta State Commissioner for Education, Barr. Chiedu Ebie, who spoke to news men, said the headmistress was suspended because she could not explain the collection of examination fees from pupils, an act which was exposed by viral video.
Mr Chiedu Ebie stated that the state operated a free education policy, and couldn’t understand why the school head was demanding levy or any other unauthorised levies from pupils.
