The Lagos State Government has warned public schoolteachers against collecting fees from pupils, saying basic education is free for all schoolchildren.

It added that any official, who acted on the contrary, would be appropriately dealt with.

The Executive Chairman of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Ganiyu Sopeyin, gave the warning while announcing the establishment of three new public primary schools in the state, a statement on Sunday said.

Sopeyin said the addition was in line with the government’s vision to make qualitative and quantitative basic education available in all parts of the state.

The new schools are Local Government Primary School, Oke-Ishagun/Ikola, in the Alimosho Local Govermnment Area; Community Primary School, Abule-Eko, Ikorodu LGA; and Tsangaya Primary School, Orofun, Ibeju-Lekki LGA.

The statement said the schools were approved for listing in a memo dated June 13, 2016, adding that the total number of primary schools across the 20 LGAs in the state now stood at 1,010.

“Sopeyin reiterated the government’s commitment to free, qualitative and quantitative basic education in the state, adding that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode would leave no stone unturned in ensuring that public primary schools were more competitive than private schools.

“He urged public school teachers in the state not to collect any money from pupils or their parents, saying any public schoolteacher and headteacher caught violating the directive would face disciplinary action of the board.

“Sopeyin also advised teachers to always abide by the rules and regulations governing their profession, stressing that the present administration was doing a lot to take education to a greater height,” the statement added.
