Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule has directed principals of public secondary schools to henceforth stop charging school fees.
The Governor gave the directive while speaking during the closing ceremony of a two-day retreat for top government functionaries which held at the Kini Country Guest Inn in Akwanga on Thursday.
Engineer Sule stated categorically that principals and headteachers of public schools should henceforth stop from charging school fees.
“I understand that some principals, the headmasters, are charging school fees and they are saying it’s the new Governor that directed them.
“And I keep saying that I’m not even aware of it. So I want to state categorically clear, that if anybody is charging school fees, they should stop it now,” the Governor directed.
He further warned the principals to stop all the new things they introduced, until they sat down and agree and collectively take a decision as a government.
