Fayemi is starting with a bang. The Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has abolished the education development levy introduced by the government of Ayodele Fayose in all primary and secondary schools in the state.

Fayemi declared that education would henceforth be free in all public primary and secondary schools across the state, saying it was anomaly for school children to pay tax.

Children at primary and secondary cadres were mandated to pay N500 and N1,000 per term respectively. The governor wondered why underage children should be made to pay levies when their parents are already paying taxes.

Dr Fayemi noted that government would not add to the burden of the already traumatised parents as a result of the harsh economy and unpaid salaries inflicted by the last administration.
