Members of the House of Representatives have called on the Federal Ministry of Education to review the new School Fees Regime in Federal Government Colleges and revert to the old regime.

The House also urged the Federal Government to adequately fund the education sector by increasing budgetary provisions to ensure that Nigerian students have access to quality and affordable basic and senior secondary education;

These are some of the resolutions on a motion ‘titiled ‘Need to Reverse the Recent Hike of School Fees in Unity Secondary Schools in Nigeria’ sponsored by a member from Ebonyi State, Mr Kama Nkemkanma at plenary in Abuja

According to Mr NkemKanma,
Federal Unity Schools were established to promote national unity and provide quality and affordable education to Nigerian students from different parts of the country, regardless of their socio-economic background.

The Lawmaker however expressed Concern that the facilities in Unity Schools across the country were severely dilapidated and lack materials required for teaching, which has negatively affected the quality of teaching and students performance in general.

He futher explained that the recently approved increase in school fees for students in Federal Government Colleges across the Country by the Federal Ministry of Education has caused anxiety among parents and students who are still grappling with the effects of the economic hardship caused by the recent subsidy removal;

Adopting the motion the Speaker of the House refered the motion to the Committee on Basic Education (when constituted) to investigate the hike in school fees for students of Federal Government Colleges across the Country and report back within four (4) weeks for further legislative action.
