The Commissioner for Basic and secondary Education in Delta state, Chiedu Ebie, said, he cannot soil his name in politics.
The commissioner, who spoke with our Reporter in Asaba, the state capital, on a wide range of issues surrounding his ministry, gave an insight to the state of the Edu Marshalls, who were recently unbundled by the state government.
He said, four of the Ex Marshalls have taken the state government to court, so the matter is subjudiced and could not be discussed, since it was in court.
Pressing further, Ebie, who is a lawyer, said, all the ex Marshalls have been settled with severance packages, which was approved by the state Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.
Ebie also said, he came into public office to serve, as he has a name to protect within and after the office, as he desires that, successive governments will build on the legacies which will be left for them from the Okowa’s administration.
Sources in the ministry, who spoke with our Reporter said, Ebie has brought his expertise to bear in the ministry, as there is an improved academic attainment in the state, and an improved working relationship between the Ministry and Teachers in the state, which could be seen in the recent statistics of WAEC result released, where Delta state made it to the top ten performance in Nigeria.
