Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state has ordered the reimbursement of N25,000 paid private boarding students for the COVID-19 and malaria test.
The Governor was heavily backlashed after private boarding schools were informed on Sunday to make a payment of N25,000 for tests.
Taking back his words, he said,
“After reviewing these developments, I have today immediately directed that the government laboratories carry out test for all returning SS3 boarding students at no cost.
“I have also directed that all those who have paid for tests be refunded.”
