The Taraba State Governor, Agbu Kefas, on Friday declared primary and Secondary School education as Free in the State.

Kefas, who made the declaration at the Ebenezer Primary School in Wukari, said that starting from the next academic session, primary and secondary education in Taraba State will be free.

The governor also emphasized that it is the government’s responsibility to bear the expenses and that students should not be subjected to any fees, saying apart from fulfilling a campaign promise, the hardship occasioned by the removal of the fuel subsidy has made the move imperative.

The governor had earlier slashed university tuition fees by 50 per cent to cushion the current hardship in the country, whereby the University students expressed joy at the development, saying the reduction in fees would greatly enhance their lives.
