Commissioner alleges doctored financials at Benue SUBEB


Benue State Commissioner for Education, Professor Dennis Ityavyar, has alleged that the financial records of the Benue State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) were doctored in such a manner that only forensic auditors can audit them.

Ityavyar who is the Chairman, Committee on Review and Repositioning of the board made the disclosure at Government House Makurdi while presenting the committees report to the State Executive Council.

“We recommend that a forensic auditor be hired in order to audit the financial records of the board because they are too dirty.

“Also, the role of the Procurement Officer be separated from Universal Basic Education Commission Matching Grant Accountant.

“All the directors at the board should be redeployed to the office of Head of Service to be posted to other MDAs. No officer should serve above four years on a post,” he said.

Receiving the report, Governor Samuel Ortom commended them for painstakingly carrying out the assignment.

Ortom said that he wanted the committee to unravel the rot that had been going on in the board.

“SUBEB is the only agency in the state that people working there whether junior or senior staff live flamboyant lives. In fact, they are nicknamed ATM.

“We must reposition the agency. Mistakes were done in the past and we have to correct them henceforth,” the Governor stated.

Recall that the erstwhile Benue SUBEB chairman, Emmanuel Aper, resigned his office penultimate week over alleged highhandedness of the commissioner who had claimed he was trying to sanitise the basic education system.
