Similarly, the ministry has approved the posting of Umar Akilu Sabo as sit-in Principal of French Bilingual College and Isyaku Umar Abdullahi as sit-in Principal of Chinese Bilingual College Kwankwaso respectively.

A statement on Monday by the Director of Public Enlightenment of the ministry, Balarabe Abdullahi Kiru, said that the suspended principals were not in schools when the team of take-up inspection paid a visit on Monday (today) to monitor the commencement of the 2023/2024 first term school session.

According to the statement, the inspection team led by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Hajiya Kubra Imam, discovered that students of the two colleges were not served food on Sunday night and their breakfast for Monday was not ready up to the time of the visit.
