President Koroma to replace education Minister
A cross section of educational authorities have made a clarion call on His Excellency the President Ernest Bai Koroma to replace the Education Minister, Dr Minkailu Bah (in photo)
Giving reasons for their clarion call during an extensive interview conducted by this medium, the agitated educational authorities described Minkailu Bah’s first tenure of office as an excellent failure evidenced by the multiple problems currently undermining quality education in this republic.
Minkailu Bah’s regime, they said, has been characterized by mass non-recruitment and non-approval of teachers, late payment of remuneration for WAEC examiners, late payment of school subsidies and a chain of other problems that keep tormenting the educational sector.
“Minkailu Bah’s retention will be an unwise decision and it will not go down well with us” they stressed, adding that the hundreds of volunteer teachers who have taught for several years without salaries will never forgive president Koroma if he decides to retain Minkailu.
