The minister reportedly approved the cancellation following complaints by parents about an increase in school fees from N20, 000 to N75, 000.

It was gathered that henceforth, all development projects in schools would be done with the approval of the ministry, while PTA fees must not exceed N5,000.

Meanwhile, the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan, yesterday at the launch of the National Education Quality Assurance Handbook for basic secondary education in Abuja said there was a small increase in boarding fees.

She explained that the increase was due to economic situation and would enable proper upkeep of boarding facilities and provide top quality meals.
