Twitter users lambast IrokoTv boss for saying N4.6m school fees is cheap


The Njokus, owner of the cable television station, IrokoTv, have received backlash from Twitter users after Jason Njoku stated that N4.6m school fee is cheap in Nigeria.

A few days ago, Jason took to his social media to reveal that school fees of N4.6m is cheap and that he pays more for his three-year-old after a Twitter user shared the provisional bill for a school in Epe, Lagos State, with school fees of N4,643, 901.

He tweeted, “Most Nigerians don’t realise but most things in Nigeria are actually super cheap by African (forget global standards).

“For Tier 1 education in Africa (forget about globally) this for boarding school is cheap. I pay more for my 3-year old’s Montessori school.”

However, his tweet did not go down well with some Twitter users and they took to the social media platform to air their opinions.

Victor Akoma, with the handle, @KcAkoma, noted that with such a fee, his child ought to solve calculus problems in preschool.

He tweeted, “My children better be solving calculus in preschool.”

Another Twitter user, @ann_yyz, felt that Jason statement was quite insensitive with the post, saying, “‘Cheap’ is relative! How much is the minimum wage? Exactly! To the average Nigerian, it is expensive. Your comment is somewhat insensitive.”
