The Ondo State government has dismissed Mrs. Abiola Fashina as the principal of Ijo Mimo Oluwa High School, Akure, over alleged misappropriation of funds meant for the payment of NECO examination in 2020, and involvement in examination malpractices in the school.

The embattled principal was also accused of aiding and abetting examination malpractices, which was reported to have been the practice in the school over the past five years. She has since been replaced with another principal.

The principal was directed to be reporting to the state Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM), pending the period of her investigations.

Similarly, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mrs. Lola Amuda, has also ordered that the executive of Parents Teachers Association (PTA) in the school, led by Pastor Ajibola Owolanke, be dissolved with immediate effect, while interim Executive members are set up.
