Obaseki, Edo State Governor.
For illegally levying students above the stipulated fees for school uniforms, the Edo State Government has drastic actions against principals of schools who engaged in such act as the government demoted four secondary school principals in the state to mere classroom teachers for collecting illegal levies from students.

The four principals were found guilty of collecting between N11,000 and N20,000 for school uniforms as against N3,000 for Junior Secondary School and N4,000 for Senior Secondary School approved by the state government.
Chairman, Edo State Post Primary Education Board, Mr. Gabriel Oiboh, announced the demotion of the teachers while giving report of the disciplinary committee set up to investigate the teachers.
Those affected were Glory Omorodion of Oka Junior Secondary School; Mrs. Victoria Okuonghae of Niger College Junior school; Mrs. Cecilia Isibor of Idogbo Junior Secondary school and Mr. Bright Omorogie of Idogbo Senior Secondary School.
Oiboh while announcing their demotion, stated that the teachers were found guilty of collecting illegal levies, having admitted same during questioning by the committee and said the affected principals would be demoted as classroom teachers as well as refund the money to the students.
Oiboh warned that henceforth, any school principals caught collecting illegal levies from students would be dismissed as reports showed that illegal levies were still being paid in some schools.
The affected principals who were first suspended last week, were also asked to refund the difference of the money they collected from students under the strict supervision of Post Primary Education Board.
