“Oloyede also advised parents/guardians to stop pushing the education of their wards faster than necessary.

“For example, a 14 or 15-year-old is not matured enough to undergo the process of registration and university pressure and are vulnerable to exploitation by scammers out there.

“Oloyede also advised states Ministries of Education and relevant stakeholders saddled with the responsibility of enrollment of students into secondary schools to ensure the students’ true age before admittance into secondary schools.
