Yenagoa—The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, NAPPS, has said the stringent tax regime by the various tiers of government on private schools in the country was negatively affecting the fortunes of the sector.

Rising from its maiden South South Education Summit in Yenagoa, the group pleaded with the authorities to grant waiver or reduce the taxes slammed on its members and also establish an Education Bank for its members.

In a communiqué by the President, NAPPS Bayelsa State, Mrs. Victoria Odubo and Chief Diekieve Ikiogha, Chairman, Central Planning Committee of the 1st South South Education Summit, the group explained that the establishment of the Education Bank by the Federal Government will make it easier for its members to obtain loan from banks.
