Benue SUBEB Chairman Resigns Appointment

 From Vincent Nyinongu, Makurdi.


All may not have been well with the education sector in Benue state as the Board Chairman, State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Rev.

Emmanuel Aper has resigned his appointment.


The immediate past SUBEB boss who turned in his letter of resignation barely seven (7) months in office had his resignation accepted same day by the Governor with directives to handover all government properties in his custody to the Secretary to the state Government (SSG).


The reason for his disengagement was not clear as at the time of this report but findings, however, revealed that he may have been asked to resign, as according to a source close to him, reasons of incompetence, insubordination among others were cited against him.


His predecessor, Rev. Phillip Tachin resigned his position last year following, which Hon.

Matthew Mnyam was appointed in acting capacity before Rev. Aper was finally given the substantive position.


It would be recalled that Dr. Wilfred Terlumun Uji had earlier in the same month resigned his position as Executive Secretary, Benue State Teaching Service Board (TSB) pointing accusing fingers on the Education Commissioner, Prof Dennis Tyavyar, who replied with counter allegations against the former ES.
