Ambode bans ‘owambes’ in public schools

The governor (Akinwunmi Ambode) has directed that schools will no longer be used for social activities any longer. ‘We want to implore members of the public to report any school that violates this directive and we would ensure that defaulting schools are sanctioned accordingly,’ she said. This is designed to raise the standard of education in the state. But it will hurt the pocket of public schools who raise considerable funds from renting out their spaces for parties. Some spaces (including school halls) fetch as much as N150,000 every weekend hosting parties from Thursdays through Sundays. It could be argued that these funds, probably partly embezzled by the powers that be, don’t get into the coffers of the government.

For instance, some schools hire extra teaching and non-teaching hands without putting them on...
