Kwara closes 5 private schools

11 January 2013, 10:09

Kwara- Kwara Government on Thursday closed five private primary schools in Alapa, Asa Local Government Area for non-compliance with policies of the government.

Abubakar Mohammed, the Director Quality Assurance Bureau, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin.

Mohammed said that the Bureau’s Task Force embarked on monitoring and evaluation of private schools in the state. He told NAN that the taskforce was empowered to close schools that lack adequate facilities and conducive environment for learning.

Abubakar said the mandate of the taskforce was to ensure that private schools that were springing up in the state meet the minimum standard. ``A private school must have the basic infrastructures and facilities like classroom, furniture, teaching and learning materials and qualified teachers,” he said. Abubakar, who is also the Chairman of the Task Force, said that schools must be located in an atmosphere conducive for learning and registered with the state Ministry of Education.

The schools closed were: Rightway Nursery/Primary School at Gaa Lamba, Alhuda Nursery/Primary School, Brightway Model International School, Brilliant Model Nursery/Primary School and Al-Imam Nursery/Primary School all in Alapa. Abubakar explained that the government embarked on the exercise to rid the state of any `kangaroo schools’ and to sanitise the education sector.
