The Parents Teachers Association (PTA of  Federal Science and Technical College, Yaba) has allegedly imposed an illegal N50k levy on every child purportedly, for a New Hostel Project. They claim that the decision was taken at a PTA meeting.

A twitter user identified as @AbdulMahmud01 popularly known as the ‘Revolutionary Oracle” took to his twitter page to share the news.

He wrote People, kindly help tweet this #Criminal act The Parents Teachers Association (PTA of Science and Technical College, Yaba ) imposes illegal N50k fee on every child purportedly, for a New Hostel Project. They claim that the decision was taken at a PTA meeting.”

“Parents have told the Great Oracle that no such PTA meeting took place. Clearly, this N50k fee is pure extortion; yet, students returning to school for the new session are not being allowed resumption, unless they show receipts of payment of this illegal fee.”

“Part of the letter reads, “Project Account: as agreed at the PTA General Meeting held on Saturday, 27th July 2019, the project account have been opened for parents to pay-in their donations. Bank: ACCESS BANK. NO. 0817220952. ACCOUNT NAME: FSTC YABA PROJECT ACCOUNT.”

“This is different from PTA Levy of 5 thousand Naira”. They call it donation. Yet they make it mandatory by denying entry to any child without a receipt of payment. This is criminal. The Minister of Education MUST intervene”
