As reactions continued to trail the death of Sylvester Oromoni, a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, a parent identified Ola Adebajo had made a shocking revelation about the school.
The Instagram user had reacted to a post by Nollywood actress Susan Peters questioning why parents of students in the school have refused to speak on the issue.
Responding to this, Ola Adebajo said there is no Parent and Teachers Association in Dowem College, the reason he withdrew his son from the school.
According to Ola Adebajo, when he inquired about why the school does not have PTA, the principal told him that the school owner does not believe in it.
She wrote: There is no PTA in Dowen College. That is why I took my son out of the school. I asked the principal and he said the owner does not believe in it but he believes in talking my money. These are the things that should be regulated by the government. You cannot have a school and not have impute from parents. It’s a recipe for disaster.
Reacting to this some social media users including actress Susan Peters shared some advice with parents. See the reactions below;
