Someone will pay 42m for school in Nigeria
EFCC is supposed to go after any parent that enrols their kids in that school.


I don't think anyone who gets money legitimately and decently can afford such a school.
Anyways, such schools have targeted markets.


Most of those are money stolen from the public treasury. To be honest, any Nigerian whose child is that school ought to be probed.


If the school has no people registering their children in that school, they wouldn't have charged such amount.
The people are always the problem.

Why Charterhouse School is charging N42m annually earlier reported that a media consultant to Charterhouse, who spoke on condition of anonymity said the school has produced five prime ministers, and top politicians in the United Kingdom.
