After four days of being issued letters of disengagement by the school management, teachers and other staff of the Community Staff Schools, Asokoro, Abuja, have been reinstated.
The school which was earlier shut for two weeks re-opened on Thursday, while lessons were expected to commence on Friday, November 6, 2020.
Recall that the school which is owned by the Department of State Services (DSS) had sacked the 140 teachers and other workers in the school after they had demanded better rewards of service.
The service also asked the 1,800 pupils in the nursery/primary and secondary arms of the school to stay at home for two weeks to enable it to reorganize the school.
According to PUNCH, DSS spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya, in a text message on Thursday said, “The school is autonomous and not run by the DSS; it has an independent board that takes decisions for it. Though I may not be speaking for the school, I, however, learnt that no single worker was dismissed. I was also told that the school will be cutting short its earlier two-week break to resume on Thursday, 5th November 2020.”
