I thought Ondo State was an oil producing state, entitled to 13% derivation. What happened to that money and what has Akeredolu done with it?

Quality education costs a lot of money but where do they want people to get the money when the minimum wage is 18000 and people are being owed salary?

This is very pedestrian. Africa had highly complex and smooth running governing systems that were easy to run before Western education.

This man is supposed to be a lawyer though.

Now this is a State with access to Federal Allocations, Igr from thousands of people and oil derivation saying fees are not sustainable at current levels. Yet someone would go and start trolling churches on top tithe that they don't pay. If Ondo can't successfully fund free education with all her resources then how do some of you expect same from churches who only receive free-will donations...

And yes I think Ondo should subsidize fees for her indigenes. Let's leave fee raise for private universities who don't enjoy assess to Tetfund, subvention and the likes. My other advise would be for State governments to leave the business of university education and adopt private universities instead just like the US Fed govt does.

Imagine Ondo adopting Elizade University alongside the owners which would help to crash out the fees at the university. The owners build the physical infrastructure while the State Govt can pay part of the recurrent wage bill. This would bring the tuition of Elizade drastically down for poor indigenes of Ondo.

Don’t be dumb.

The Irish, Slavs & Arabs were also sold as slaves by Europeans who gave you modern governance to Europeans and Africans. Slavery is a by-product of a socio-economic system and sometimes a dictate of political economy.

The modern government has enslaved the entire world with capitalism, endless labour & primitive acquisition of wealth.

Working 9-5 to be paid salary & pension is in itself slavery; every modern government of the world sells its citizen as slaves the moment they hit working age.

So relax.
