According to the NUT leader, the union will not condone any act of financial misconduct by any of its members or executives.

He claimed that the former chairman connived with some officials of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).

Akoshile who announced the suspension of the chairman and two other staff of the union, maintained that the national body frowns at the practices which it considers an embarrassment to the union.
