Bilyaminu Ishaku and Andrew Anebi Candidus, from the board’s Makurdi, Benue State office, were fired, according to a statement released on March 1, 2023 by the board’s Chief of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr. Fabian Benjamin.

The fired employees were charged with document fabrication in the statement.

The board indicated that their termination became effective on February 27, 2023.

“Sequel to your appearance before the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee and the subsequent recommendations of the committee, I am directed to convey to you the approval of the Honourable Minister of Education of your dismissal from the service of the Board from 27th February 2023 for serious misconduct,” the statement read in part. 

According to the statement, the dismissal was in line with the Public Service Rule 030401, which defined serious misconduct as a “specific act of very serious wrongdoing and improper behaviour, which is inimical to the image of the service and which can be investigated and if proven, may lead to dismissal.”

The staff were directed to submit their identity cards and all other property of the Board in their possession to the State Coordinator, JAMB Office, Benue State, for onward submission to the Director, Human Resources, with immediate effect.
