Kwara Shuts Down 88 ‘Illegal’ Schools

The
Kwara state government yesterday said it had closed down 88
‘’mushroom’’ private nursery, primary and secondary schools in the
state.

 The
state’s commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Engr
Musa Yeketi disclosed this while delivering his address at the 2016 Day
of the National Association of Proprietors of Private School (NAPPS) in
Ilorin, the state capital.
 Yeketi
asked proprietors of schools  still operating illegally to regularise
their operation and those with substandard facilities to upgrade them or
risk sanctions from government.
 The
commissioner who acknowledged the impact of private schools in
complementing the state government’s efforts in the provision of
qualitative education in the state, warned that “no school is above the
law of the state”.
 “We
have some private schools with good infrastructure
facilities,instructional materials,qualified personnel that meet
international standards.
   
“However,there are many of these private schools that do not in anyway
meet quality standards. Let me use this opportunity to appeal to such
substandard schools to upgrade their facilities or face closure;all
unregistered schools should regularise their status.
