A group has tasked the Cross River state government, CRSG to institute modalities in place to check erring school principals from imposing unnecessary charges on secondary school students across the state given a recent state educational intervention as palliative for the federal government removal of fuel subsidy NEGROIDHAVEN can report.

In a press release sighted by our correspondent The Third Force, while commending the educational intervention of the state government under the leadership of Gov Bassey Otu to cushion the negative effects of the federal government’s removal of subsidy for PMS in the state said that as a way of frustrating the sabotage of that gesture, the state governor should set modalities in place to check the imposition of further charges by administrators of secondary schools.

According to the press release titled ‘Waiver of Tuition in Public Schools: Little Gesture with Significant Impact’, ‘While awaiting far reaching reform in our public school system, we urge the government to put in place necessary checks, to prevent school administrators from imposing other unauthorized charges on unsuspecting parents in a manner likely to defeat this good intention of our government.

‘On a general note, we appreciate this government for wearing a human face and we pray for more people-oriented policies directed towards the wellbeing of our people.’

Recall that in September, Gov Otu had disclosed that the state government was in receipt of the sum of N2 billion from the FG as part payment for the promised N5 billion palliative.
