The Parent Teacher Association(PTA) of Federal Government College, Efon Alaaye, Ekiti State, has accused the school principal, Mrs. Grace Ogunyomi(pictured) of corrupt practices and imposing illegal fees.

In a petition to the federal ministry of education, which was signed by the PTA’s chairman and the secretary, Mr. Tolu Ajibade and Mr. Paul Omotayo respectively, the petitioner alleged that
Mrs. Ogunyomi was gouging parents with illegal fees.

The petition read in part, “ Mrs. Grace Ogunyomi has been extorting and exploiting parents in collection of illegal fees which were clearly unapproved by Federal Ministry of Education.”

“We have since found out that the principal was merely acting alone as such fees were never approved by the ministry.

“We also have in our custody a recent circular from the Federal Ministry signed by the Director, Department of Secondary Education, Mr. D.C Uwaezuoke and dated June 23, 2015 stating details of approved fees payable by students, but which the Principal has continually ignored.

“We want Mr. President and the Ministry to act fast so that his good vision of transforming the education sector and make it affordable and accessible is not truncated by the activities of elements such as the principal of our children’s school.”
