Many parents are worried about the frequent hike in fees demanded by private schools in Nigeria.

Some of them who spoke with SOJ CORRESPONDENT are already contemplating withdrawing their kids and taking the public school option where they do not have to pay outrageous school fees.

“This is pure exploitation and extortion,” said one of the parents who spoke with our correspondent early on Thursday morning.


Primary and Secondary schools across Nigeria resumed for the first term of the 2022/2023 academic session on Monday, January 9, 2022.

The children were certainly happy to be back at school to meet with their friends and favourite teachers after a month-long holiday, but the parents are however saddened by the increments in school fees and other levies.

However, the frequent increases in school fees and other levies have raised concerns amongst parents and guardians who sometimes have to pay through their noses.


For some, school fees take a better part of the family’s earnings and income.
