Rahman Abiodun Abdu-Raheem, Oyo State Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, has warned those he calls purveyors of a calumny campaign to stop their evil plots against the education family, declaring that the campaign will fail.
The commissioner was responding to an anonymous post that was widely circulated on social media and raised allegations that ministry officials were taxing some secondary school principals and vice principals during the process of registering students for the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and the National Examination Council (NECO), declaring that the allegations had no iota of truth.
The unsigned post being circulated on different platforms had alleged, among other things, that officials of the state have been charging N600 extra per student who registers for WAEC or NECO exams, adding that the same was being shared among officials of the Ministry, the Post-Primary Education Service Commission (TESCOM), executive members of ANCOPPS and Tutors General.
The publication, which was addressed to Governor Seyi Makinde, equally alleged that some persons have been paying for appointments at the TESCOM and that school heads were often made to cough out different amounts to service officials who come on unscheduled inspections.

While addressing the matter, the commissioner declared that the allegations were false, unfounded, and aimed at tarnishing the good deeds of the incumbent administration in the education sector.
He declared that the Ministry, TESCOM or ACCOPSS are not involved in the collection of any illegal levy in the schools.
