Alamu stated that there was no basis for such demand for payment of the quarter of school fees as the private school owners ought to have consulted with parents and other stakeholders before deciding on such.

The Oyo TESCOM chairman emphasised that the private school owners concerned should see the effects of COVID-19 as that which affected them and parents as well.

Mr Alamu urged the private school owners to desist from charging the students without appreciating the consequence of the current situation on the financial strength of individual homes.
