The Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, has announced that the Ministry will no longer grant approval to private schools lacking CCTV cameras in their premises and classrooms across the state.

Addressing the issue of alleged mistreatment of a student by a teacher, Mrs. Oluchukwu Ogidi of the Living Word Magnet School in Awka, Commissioner Chuma-Udeh emphasized the necessity of CCTV surveillance in schools. This requirement, she stated, will now be a prerequisite for approving any private educational institution in the state.

According to Mr. Nnaemeka Egwuonwu, the Public Relations Officer of the State Ministry of Education, Commissioner Chuma-Udeh underscored the importance of CCTV cameras in monitoring school activities while investigating the reported incident.

Additionally, Commissioner Chuma-Udeh cautioned against excessive corporal punishment, noting that such actions could alienate students from their teachers and hinder the learning process. She emphasized the state’s commitment to safeguarding the welfare of all children, stating that any form of abuse will not be tolerated.

In response to the incident, Commissioner Chuma-Udeh ordered the removal of the accused teacher from her current class and reassignment to another class. Furthermore, she warned of potential closure if further verified reports of misconduct arise against the school.

This directive signals the Anambra State government’s firm stance on ensuring the safety and well-being of students in educational settings.
