Parents of Feso International School, Ilesa, Osun State, have petitioned the Governor and the state Police Commissioner over the registration of underaged students of the school as eligible voters by the proprietor.

The parents had alleged that the proprietor on Friday, in connivance with a particular political party, took some students whose ages are between 13-15 years of age and gave them N200 each in order for them to be registered as voters at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office located at Ilesa-West Local Government Secretariat.

According to the petition, the students, who wore dresses that were other than their school uniform, were led by the school’s security guard and a teacher to the INEC office.

An agent of the commission, Opeyemi after observing the unusual faces of the students accosted them and after a brief confrontation, they confessed that they were asked to commit the offence by their proprietor.

The parents, through the petition, appealed to the state government to set their children free as they are in school to study and not to register as underaged voters at the INEC office.

They also asked the Governor and the Commissioner of Police to order the immediate arrest and prosecution of the proprietor, the guard and the teacher who led the students to the INEC office so as to serve as a deterrent to others.
