Ekiti Catholic Threatens Gov. Fayose With Law Suit Over Levy

Published

on

It’s just a warning. They are only warning him now, so that he will know what will become of Government’s action if they dare near their schools.
The Catholic diocese of Ekiti has threatened to sue Governor Ayodele Fayose over the education development levy imposed on primary and secondary pupils in both state-owned and private schools in the state.
Under the new tax regime, pupils in primary and secondary schools are to pay N500 and N1,000 education development levy, respectively.
But the catholic church has said it will not pay the money, advising the government to exempt its schools from payment.
Citing Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Law, 2005, the church said the state government had the mandatory obligation to provide free and compulsory education for every child of primary to junior secondary school classes.
The bishop of the diocese, Most Rev. Felix Ajakaye, stated this in a press statement made available to journalists in Ado Ekiti on Thursday.
He threatened to file a legal action against the government in the circumstance that any of the schools under his custody is disturbed.”
“No law empowers the state government of Ekiti to impose Education Development Levy on pupils/students of mission schools in Ekiti state,” he said.
Ajakaye said that the church viewed the new tax as another burden on parents whom he said were already overwhelmed with taxes in different forms by the state government.
He recalled with pain how the state, under the military regime in 1975, “forcibly” took over 106 Catholic primary schools with seven secondary schools and one technical school without compensation.
He added that the new tax was unnecessary because schools established by the Church had been paying various levies and taxes demanded by both local and state governments.
“The Catholic Church in Ekiti land implores the state government to see the Church as great contributor to quality education and a formidable partner in the development of education in the state. Therefore, the status of the Catholic schools must be recognised as defined by their purposes and they should be treated accordingly,” Ajakaye added.

We Must Get You – Police Tells Senator Dino Melaye

Published

on

The Nigeria Police has vowed to arrest Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West at the Senate. Mr Melaye had earlier in the day raised alarm of a police seige laid at his Abuja residence.

Moments after raising the alarm, the Police forcefully gained access to his compound and has continued with the siege. The police personnel believes the lawmaker is in the building despite denial from Melaye.

Stating its reason for the siege, the Police in a statement from its spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, said the Senator is wanted in connection to an alleged attack on a police personnel.

“The Police operatives currently in the residence of Senator Dino Melaye are to effect his arrest to answer to the case of attempted culpable homicide on the shooting of a Police Officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi state,” the statement from Moshood said.

“The above offence was committed by Senator Dino Melaye and his armed thugs in Kogi State on the 19th July, 2018 when they shot and wounded a police officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi state.

“The Police Officer is yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack and still under intensive medical care. “The Police investigators have written the Clerk of the National Assembly for Senator Dino Melaye to report at Kogi State Police Command, CIID, Lokoja for him to answer to these offences against him under investigation in Kogi State Police Command but he has bluntly refused to report himself to the Police.

“The Police operatives will continue to be in wait at the residence of Senator Dino Melaye until he surrenders himself for arrest. The offence for which Senator Dino Melaye is being investigated is capital in nature and not compoundable.

“The Force will not tolerate attack on its personnel by any individual no matter how highly placed. The law must take its course,” it added. Melaye and the police have had a running battle since the senator was named by suspects in a murder case.

The latest development comes days after the lawmaker hinted of plans to abduct and inject him to death.
