The Principals were sent packing over alleged age falsification.
When our reporter visited the PPSMB office, the list of those retired was pasted on the notice board.
According to a source, another list is on the way as more of the identified culprits would be sent packing soon.
The source disclosed that some of the affected principals manipulated their age to remain in service for over five years beyond their normal period of service.
It was gathered that the PPSMB had compelled them to update their records but in doing so, the principals who were due to retire soon, allegedly falsified their ages in order to spend more years in service.
Some of the principals had alleged that they parted with huge sums of money to influence their appointments and having allegedly greased the palms of the officials in-charge went ahead to falsify their documents to enable them remain in service fraudulently.
However, a discreet investigation was reportedly launched into their claims, particularly as it affects their date of birth and years spent in service.
