These 10 Photos Clearly Shows The Difference Between Public And Private Schools In Nigeria

One major difference between private and public schools in Nigeria is definitely the tuition fee.

The public schools are owned by the government while the private schools are owned by individuals or missionaries. Typically, one who attends a public school is an “ajepako” and the ones who attend private schools are referred to as “ajebotas”.

Here are ten photos that basically show you the difference between these two schools:

#1. School Fees

Private: Break the bank.

Public: Pay for uniform and come to school to learn.
