BY OMOKHUALE PUAH

The Proprietor, Stokhan Schools, Iyana Isashi, Lagos, Dr. Shinaayomi Akintolure says, due to the economic recession, parents are beginning to withdraw their children from school.

She stated this after series of interview with some Vanguard Investigators, during a review of The Students’ Fortress, which was adjudged by Laternabooks Limited, as one of the bestsellers in the education department of the bookstores.

Vanguard investigations revealed that as parents withdraw their children and wards from private schools, owners of some private schools have introduced attractive discounts to parents to curtail the unfavorable trend.

Dr. Akintolure explained that this situation on ground is not just because of the increase in school fees, but even to keep the home front going is suddenly an issue. “Though the highbrow areas could attempt increasing fees, but we here cannot, because we now have a 10 to 15 percent shrink in the number of pupils to public schools.

‘’Some parents are even pleading on us to give their children double promotion and if you do not do that for them, they will take their wards to other schools, just so that they will not pay the school fees of the three terms they are supposed to pay, not minding the dangers this could cause them later.”

In the words of The Proprietor, Tob Land Nursery and Primary School, Agege, Lagos, who

Who did not want his name to shown, “Without counting the academic consequence on their wards, some parents have maintained that the double promotion will relieve them of the burden of paying school fees for a year.

“Almost 75% of the parents are unable to pay their children’s school fees and buy books due to the recession. Some parents are buying half of the text books.

“The initial thought was to increase the school fees this term but I was unable to because of the economic challenges and the fear of them been withdrawn into Public schools, but now about 15 students of my school has been taken into a public school”, he added.

Mrs Gladys Adewumi is a Beauty Salon operator whose three children attend Living Joy Nursery and Primary School, Ikorodu. She said “I withdrew two of my children from the private school to public schools when it was apparent that her husband could not cope financially, coupled with the current economic condition of Nigeria”.

In clear utterance Dr. Akintolure advised “school owners who really know their onions, need to take their eyes off just profit making and focus on educating the children, because you cannot sack teachers like banks sack workers.

As proprietors we need to sacrifice about 40 to 50 percent of our profit if need be, to ensure that children keep getting the best even as we remain in business.”

Mr. Okoh a school proprietor pleaded, saying “the government should look into the recession, turn the economy around so that all aspects of life will return to normal’’.

Soludo foresees a higher recession in Nigeria

SOLUDO FORESEES HIGHER RECESSIONS IN NIGERIA

BY OMOKHUALE PUAH

Former Governor, Chukwuma Soludo of the Central Bank of Nigeria had on Monday said that the recommendations for Nigeria to sell its asset in other to raise fund, is dangerous and troubling.

These recommendations, which were made; by the National Economic Council (NEC), the Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Richest man in Africa, Aliko Dangote were dismissed by Mr. Soludo, who said that “The scheme will only be a win-win for government and its collaborators in the private sector whereas, Nigerians and their economy will be the losers.

According to Soludo, the recommendations are merely an advice, subject to a final approval by the President, Muhammadu Buhari, but he considers them as fundamental flaws, based on false foundation.

Fortnight ago, NEC at the end of their retreat urged the government to try the sale of assets; Nigerian Liqified Natural Gas (LNG), a four state owned refinery, Nigeria’s equity in Africa Finance Corporation, AFC and the airports.

He urged the government to reduce their equity holdings in upstream oil and gas joint venture operation, so as to build reserves for recovery, but this recommendation has equally attracted criticisms from the Nigeria Labour Congress and other concerned Nigerians, describing the recommendation’s backbone, as ‘Economic vampires’, which the government ought to take precautions against.

In the words of Mr. Soludo, “any sale of asset now, amounts to chasing pennies, when we are losing pounds, as such a quick auction of selling national asset can only benefit the few privileged, while its jeopardy on Nigeria, would be a historical mistake”, he said.

Mr. Soludo faulted the government, asking “if the policy of selling Nigeria’s asset is to get out of recession, what happens to the revenue Nigeria loses everyday in oil production and sales through disruptions in the Niger delta?

“If your objective of selling the assets is to build government reserves and budget revenue, then you are in haste to lose pounds and grab pennies” he added.
