This directive, which passes through the office of Federal Ministry of Education in order to alleviate the sufferings of parents, indicated that no PTA of any Unity College is allowed to initiate any development in Unity Colleges without Federal Government’s authorization.
A statement signed by Mr. Ben Bem Goong, Director Press, Ministry of Education says the new measures are designed to arrest the situation where development levies imposed on parents by PTAs are higher than the school fees charged by the Federal Government.
While acknowledging the complementary roles by the PTAs in the colleges, the Ministry says it will not allow PTAs to constitute themselves into a parallel Government in the schools at the expense of parents.
