The Director, Federal Capital Territory Secondary Education Board, Mrs Nanre Emeje, has denied imposing any levy on Senior Secondary school students in the nation’s capital.
A civil rights organisation, Initiative for Citizens’ Rights, Accountability and Development had on Wednesday alleged that students were compelled to pay N1,500 per session against the official fees by the FCTA.
However, speaking to newsmen on Thursday, Emeje explained that the levy being paid is N500 per session, stressing that parents through the PTA came up with the arrangement.
“The levy is not from the government, it is a private arrangement so they are those that decide where they will be paying the money, it is purely a PTA project not FCT Administration project, or FCT Secondary Education Board.
“There is feedback from the schools, even at the board we also monitor the school management system,” she said.
