Kwara govt warns principals against collection of illegal fees, fix PTA levy

The Kwara Government has warned school principals to desist from collection of illegal fees from students or their parents.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Press Secretary, Ministry of Education And Human Capital, Development, Mr Peter Amogbonjaye.

According to the statement, the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, gave the warning after a meeting held with all principals of secondary schools at Saint Anthony Secondary School, Ilorin.

She said, ”Your support as school heads is needed for the Administration of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq who is committed to the welfare of teachers while also making huge investments in the education sector.

”Also there should be sanity and discipline across the schools and I urge the Principals to tolerate one another to allow peace to reign in their respective schools.”

Adeosun urged the principals to keep their students indoor, saying any school whose students are found roaming the street risks government sanctions.

”Also, no Principal should admit new students into SS1 without the BECE result, and where there is overpopulation in school, the students should move to neighbouring schools.

“Vice Principal Academics should take charge of all examinations in the school, and staff should not be used as exam officers. Any school found wanting will be sanctioned,” she said.

The statement added that the state government has approved the following fees in schools:
JSS – 1,450
SSS – 1,500
JSS – 3,930
SSS – 3,980
JSS – 4,500
SSS – 5,600 (NAN)
