Jason Njoku, CEO of IrokoTV, says he pays more than N4.6 million for his three-year-old child who attends a Montessori school.
Njoku brought the revelation to light on Wednesday while reacting to a Twitter post bordering on the cost of education in Nigeria.
The Montessori education is a child-centered system which allows pupils to explore their different potentials through various practical measures.
The conversation had started after a user on the microblogging platform shared a screenshot of a boarding school’s provisional bill totalling N4,643,901.
Although the user acknowledged the standard of the school located in Epe area of Lagos state, he expressed concern over the amount paid by students.
Reacting to the tweet, Njoku said such fee is cheap for a boarding school, noting that people pay more than that in other countries.
The IrokoTV boss added that most Nigerians do not realise that they pay less for things when compared to their counterparts in other African countries.
“Most Nigerians don’t realise but most things in Nigeria are actually super cheap by African (forget global standards),” he wrote.
