Governor Soludo Suspends Four Principals-In a resolute move to uphold the state’s “free education policy,” Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has suspended four school principals who allegedly defied the government’s directive. The decision to take disciplinary action against the principals was communicated through a press statement issued by Nnaemeka Egwuonwu, the Public Relations Officer of the state Ministry of Education.

The suspension of these education administrators, as announced by the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, underscores the government’s commitment to enforcing its policy of free education for all residents of Anambra State.


The four principals relieved of their duties are Nkem Nkechi of Washington Memorial Grammar School, Onitsha; Onwurah Catherine of Kenneth Dike Secondary School, Awka; Dr. Cordelia Okonkwo of New Era Secondary School, Onitsha; and Amaka Ubaka of Prince Memorial High School, Onitsha. These educators were alleged to have acted in contravention of the state’s free education policy, despite clear and repeated directives from Governor Soludo.

Prof. Chuma-Udeh has announced the formation of a committee to thoroughly investigate the activities of the affected principals. If found guilty, they may be required to refund the funds collected in violation of the free education policy. The commissioner expressed her astonishment that, despite multiple announcements by Governor Soludo regarding the policy, these principals persisted in flouting the directive.

Governor Soludo’s unwavering commitment to providing free education has been evident in his recent visits to Premier Primary School Odume Obosi and Ado Girls Secondary School Onitsha, where he emphasized that no child from early childhood education to Junior Secondary School should be burdened with any fees. He also clarified that the maximum fee for Senior Secondary students should not exceed N5,000.

This firm stance on free education reflects the government’s dedication to enhancing educational accessibility and affordability for the people of Anambra State. Governor Soludo reiterated these principles during a meeting with principals and headteachers at the International Conference Centre, Awka, on Saturday, ensuring that the policy is well understood and strictly adhered to across the state.
