FGC Principal did not impregnate my 17-yr-old daughter — Father
Reports that a 17-year-old female student of Federal Government College, Jos, Aisha Suleiman, was impregnated by her principal is false, says the alleged victim’s father, Alhaji Suleiman Ahmad.
The Parents-Teachers’ Association (PTA) had last week accused the school principal, Mohammed Manko, of impregnating Aisha and called for his removal.
But Leadership reports that the girl's father, Alhaji Suleiman Ahmad, has described the allegations as falsehood intended “to tarnish the good character and image of his daughter, and her principal.”
“Aisha is very healthy and has not conceived any pregnancy, here is she as you can see, did you see any sign of pregnancy?” Ahmad said.
“I am challenging anybody that is alleging that my daughter is pregnant to come so that we take her for pregnancy test at the hospital.”
He also rubbished reports that he intends to marry off Aisha to the principal.
“When the school was a boarding (system), I made Muhammad her guardian, and up until now he is still her guardian, so I can say that, that is the relationship between them, but not the issue of marriage," the father added.
“I know that the principal is very much aware of the rule that says he cannot seek marital relationship with any of his students and, therefore, cannot venture into it.”
This development complicates the issue, following earlier comments attributed to Manko in which he admitted to having a relationship with the student.
While denying that he impregnated the girl, he had also offered to marry her.
