Protest As FG Increases School Fees For Unity Schools

The increment in the school fees for unity schools has not been taken lightly by parents/Guardians for their wards about to enter or that are already in there. The rate at which the school fees was increased is alarming form about N20,000 to about N75,000. The National Parents and Teachers Association of the Federal Government Colleges (NAPTAFEGC), have led a protest against the new school fees.

FG Increases Unity Schools’ Fees

The increase of school fees from about N20,000 to about N75,000 in unity colleges has has caused a serious uproar from those affected .It can be recalled the the minimum wage of a Nigerian is N18,000, lets assume such a fellow has a family and children to charter for, then the unity school would no longer be affordable.

Dr. Gabriel Nnaji, a member of the National Executive Council of NAPTAFEGC said “The recent increase is a negation of the policy or principle that established unity colleges which is to make basic and secondary education affordable and accessible to an average Nigerian student.”

The association therefore appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and the members of the National Assembly to compel the Federal Ministry of Education to revert to the old fee regime “as the education of Nigerian children is a right and not a privilege.”

“The association will continue to partner the Federal Ministry of Education by complementing the efforts of the ministry in the provision of basic facilities in the unity colleges,”.

The fight for a decrease in the fees is still on.
