The Ondo State Government has ordered the principals of public secondary schools in the state to refund the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination fees collected from the pupils to them.

Governor Mr Rotimi Akeredolu had last week announced the approval of the state government to pay the WAEC fees for 25,736 pupils of secondary schools across the state.

A sum of N360m was earmarked for the payment.

The Permanent Secretary of the state Ministry of Education Science and Technology, Mrs Lola Amuda, gave the directive at a meeting with executives of the state chapter of the All Nigeria Conference of Principals of Secondary Schools, and other stakeholders in the education sector, held in Akure, the state capital.

Amuda said, “The directive followed the approval of funds by the Ondo State Governor for the payment of the 2020/2021 WASSCE fees for all SS3 students in public schools across the state in line with its free education policy.”

In a remark, the President of the ANCOPPS in Ondo State, Mr Johnbull Mebawondu, commended the governor for being considerate, and promised that the school heads would abide by the policy of government.
