Akwa Ibom closes 2 illegal schools

10 December 2012, 10:03

Akwa-Ibom - The Akwa Ibom Government has ordered the closure of two private schools for violating required guidelines for the establishment of schools in the state.

A statement signed by the Akwa Ibom Commissioner, Mrs Eunice Thomas, in Uyo, said the two private schools shut down were St. Thomas, Uyo and Victor Nursery School, Uyo.

According to Thomas, the closure was due to the lack of conducive environment for learning and teaching in the schools.

“Saint Thomas was closed down because the nursery, primary and junior secondary schools are accommodated in one hall that is also used for church services.

“Victor Nursery School uses only two class rooms in a crowded storey building without meeting the educational standard,” she said.

The commissioner said that the operation of the two schools were clear violation of government guidelines as they failed to obtain the ``Authority to Operate''.

``The ministry will continue to clamp down on illegal schools in order to guarantee the right of the child to quality education in a secured and safe environment.

``The educational development policy of this administration will not tolerate, accommodate such mess since we are revamping our educational standard to produce good ambassadors in future,” she said.
