Ogun private school owners protest over multiple levies
“We are assisting the government to employ staff into our schools and a lot of us are on loans. It is a social service we are rendering.”
He said, “We are among the best 1,000 schools in WAEC last year, no single public school in Ogun State in the last WAEC is among the 1,000 and we have 55 private schools from Ogun State, that are among.”
On the issue of mushroom private schools in the state, he said the association had done a documentary on them, which it had submitted to the commissioner for education, for necessary action, but nothing has been done about it.
Mujota said the increments were not a routine exercise, adding that they have not been touched in the last four years.
She said, “The intention of the government was not to kill the schools adding that the decision was in line with the school fees being charged by the schools.”
