The Ogun State Government has set up a team of top civil servants to review the report submitted on Monday by the panel that investigated the alleged conduct of virginity test on some pupils by the principal of Ajuwon Senior High School, Ajuwon.
Speaking to our Punch correspondent on Tuesday, the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Barrister Segun Odubela, confirmed that the panel had turned in its report.
He added that the review panel was in line with “due process.”
Odubela said, “The Ogun State Government has received the report of the panel set up to investigate the alleged conduct of virginity test on pupils of Ajuwon Senior High School by their principal, Rev. Olufunke Aladeojobi, and another member of staff.
“I have looked through the contents of the report and I can confidently say that the work done by the panel was thorough and we are satisfied with it.
“But the state government has gone a step further by setting up a three-man team to review the recommendations made by the probe panel. The team comprises two permanent secretaries and a director in the ministry.”
The members of the review panel are, a Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mr. Ambaliu Ishola, Permanent Secretary, Ogun State Teaching Service Commission; Mr. Ayodele Koleade, and Mr. Mutiu Maboreje, a director in the ministry.
Asked if the review panel was not an indirect way of passing a vote of no confidence on the report, Odubela said, “Setting up the review panel is in line with the adherence to internal mechanisms of due process and it is not in any way meant to discredit the report.”
