Ondo State Government has resolved to continue with its free education policy for pupils of public primary schools and public secondary schools in the state but asked parents to pay for their children’s Secondary School Leaving Certificate Examination.

Briefing Government House reporters at the end of the State Executive Council on Thursday, the State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Mr Femi Agagu, and his information and orientation counterpart, Mr. Yemi Olowolabi, said the Council looked critically at the decisions of stakeholders at the last #Education Summit and resolved that government will continue to fund education at the primary and post-primary levels.

The State Executive Council, according to the commissioners, also approved the setting up of an Education Trust Fund that would help mobilise funds for the education sector in the state.

Agagu also said that the Trust Fund would be managed by a committee comprising of prominent sons and daughters of Ondo state and they would encourage each adult citizen of the state to pay #1,000:00 into the Trust Fund.

He, however, said that parents and guardians would as from next year be responsible for the payment of their children and wards' fees for the Secondary School Leaving Certificate Examination.
In a related development, Olowolabi said the State Executive Council has approved the appointment of a new Asuada of Isuada in Owo Local Government Area, Prince Joel Oluwafemi Adeluwoye.
