Zamfara revokes 500 licenses of private schools

1 Mins read

Zamfara State government has announced that 500 operational licenses of private schools have been revoked in the state.

The State Commissioner for Education, Dr. Ibrahim Abdullahi disclosed this to journalists in Gusau, the state capital during an interview.

The Commissioner stated that comprehensive procedures would be set for any private school that needed to be re-issued with a new operational license before it can be reconsidered.

He said, “When the administration of Bello Mohammed Matawalle took over the reign of power in the state, he realized that the government had almost lost control of the supervision of the operation of these private schools as there was no control mechanism set up by the state ministry of education which empowers the government to monitor its operations.”

The commissioner said that a system whereby a private school owner is only required to pay the sum of N30,000 for the issuance of operational license was unacceptable, noting that the state government is not benefiting from the money despite the huge amount of money private school operators get from parents and guardians.

He added that his ministry had already come up with a draft bill which will be sent to the state of Assembly for passage.

He believed the law will empower the state ministry of education to have total control of what private schools are doing in the state.
