The Delta State Government has reacted to a viral video where a young girl was sent home after her parents failed to pay her N15, 000 school fees.

Success, seven, became a hit on social media over her furious reaction to being sent home for failing to pay for second term examination and books.

The said school, Okotie-Eboh Primary School 1, Sapele, in Sapele LGA, has come under the spotlight from the state government.

Commissioner for education in the state, Chiedu Ebie, told Punchng that the state government operated a free education policy and it was illegal for the school authority to demand examination levy or any other unauthorised levies from pupils.

“Once again, this is another case of a school head taking the laws into her hands and imposing levies that ought not to be imposed on the pupils.

“We have what we referred to as ‘approved levy’ in our schools. It is issued by the ministry (of education). The approved levy is N100 for consumables and no school head has the right to collect above N100.

“Let’s give her the opportunity to hear from her. The video has been trending for the last two days and she must be aware of it. If I am not convinced or satisfied with her response, then judgement or punishment will be meted out to anyone caught culpable pending the conclusion of a more detailed investigation in line with civil service rules,” he said.
