Few months ago the Union pleaded to Mr. Governor concerning the over 100 percent inflation of model Colleges School fees. The union which serve as the number one indigenous student body in the state under the leadership of Comrade Shasanya Akinola spoke through their spokesman comrade Abdulsalam Hassan and pleaded to the governor with cogent reasons why the state government have to reduce the school fees.
All thanks to the governor for getting back to us through the Commissioner for Education Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo in a statement issued on Sunday 19 of September 2021 by Mr. Ganiu Lawal an assistant Director in the ministry that the parents will now pay #35,000 for a session.
Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo Said “ experimental fee regime’’ was in accordance with the resolution made by officials of the ministry, parents and lawmakers.
She assured that no other fee would be charged nor would any intervention be imposed on parents within this period.
Mrs. Adefisayo explained that the idea was to avoid overburdening parents and it would further allow for a true reflection of the workability of the new boarding school fees in the 2021/2022 academic session.
The menu list of the students will also be reviewed and standardised in terms of necessary nutrition. Schools are also expected to incorporate available local menu and seasonal foods.
As education is an essential part of the THEME agenda we acclaim Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Cabinet members for being a good listener and for putting our request into swift action.
