Ogun teachers urge re-introduction of corporal punishment

Teachers in the Ogun State public primary and secondary schools have asked the state government to review the corporal punishment law in order to instill necessary discipline in public schools.

The review, according to them, is necessary to address the rising cases of cultism in the state’s public primary and secondary schools.

Speaking on Rockcity FM programme “Daybreak Show”, state chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASUSS), Akeem Lasisi, said the banning of corporal punishment in the public schools, is not assisting the teachers in punishing errant students.

Expressing concern over the rise in the population of students cultists, Lasisi said they are making teaching difficult for teachers in such environment

Also speaking on the programme, the deputy state chairman of Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Akinola Adeleke, described the development as worrisome making it almost impossible to learn due to the fear of attack from the student cultists.
