CALLING TEACHER NICKNAME NOT ENOUGH TO FLOG MY CHILD — EBONYI COMMISIONER

The commissioner for Culture and Tourism of Ebonyi State Mr Hyacinth Ikpo has declared as illegal the flogging of his child for calling a female teacher with Urban Secondary School Abakaliki-Mrs Thelma Nweke by nickname.
The commissioner’s child was said to have engaged in acts of indiscipline and ridiculing of the teacher by drawing cartoon image on the board and labeled it the teacher’s name.

It was gathered that when the teacher came to the class to teach her subject, she saw the drawing on the board with her name, and inquired who made the drawing.
After several threats to punish the students, they confessed that the drawing was done by the Commissioner’s child and consequently the school authority ordered her to flog the child but she declined which prompted another teacher to flog the child.
The child went home and reported to her commissioner father who came to the school the next morning with his wife, an Ex-officio member of the People’s Democratic Party PDP in the state and attempted beating up the teacher.
Nigerian NewsDirect gathered that it took the timely intervention of the School Principal to calm the Commissioner and his wife down. As if that humiliation was not enough, Ikpo went further to threaten the teacher with a sack and detention in police cell.
When contacted, Ikpo denied the allegation that he attempted to beat up the teacher but admitted that if not for his position as a Commissioner, he would have ensured that the teacher was thrown into the police ceil.
He said: “I did not beat up the teacher neither did my wife; I had to prevent my wife from talking because if I had not, the story would have been different. This office and my position as a Commissioner was what stopped me from making sure that the teacher is currently cooling off at the police cell.

“So because I am a commissioner, I should sit down and allow somebody beat up my child. If not for the School Principal that pleaded with me, by now she would be teaching in one remote village because I would have made sure she is transferred”.
Ikpo presents an argument that every teacher has a nickname by students and that calling a teacher such nickname is not enough reason to flog such deviant student.
Hear him: “There is no teacher that does not have a nickname. Governor Elechi, when he taught me in school, he had a nickname we used to call him. What is wrong in a student calling her teacher her nickname? This is why some students don’t like attending some teachers’ classes, because the relation between the teacher and the student is not cordial,” Ikpo said.
Enraged by the development, a human right group based in Abakaliki, the Campaign for the Protection of Rights and Privileges of Civil Servants (CPPCS) has petitioned the Ebonyi State Governor, Chief Martin Elechi, the Supervising Minister for Education, Barr Nyesom Wike, the Ebonyi State Ministry of Education and the State Secondary Education Board against the commissioner for alleged harassment, intimidation and threats of Mrs. Nweke.
