Kano - The Kano State Taskforce on Private Schools on Tuesday sealed six private schools which vacated before the approved date for the academic session.
The taskforce Chairman, Baba Umar, who said this when he spoke to newsmen in Kano, said all schools were expected to vacate for Xmas break between December 13 and December 14.
He said the decision to seal the affected schools was taken after they flouted the state government’s order.
"We went out today only to find out that some schools have already closed for Xmas break before the approved time," he said.
He listed the affected schools as Isioma Memorial School, Albright International School, Renewal School, and Ivory Nursery school, all in Kwakwaji.
The others are Depot Group of Schools, Dakatar, and Abije Academy, Hadeja Road.
"It appears that some proprietors of schools in Kano are bent on disrespecting lawful instructions," Umar said.
Umar warned other school proprietors against violating the academic calendar, and reaffirmed the commitment of the taskforce to ensure sanity in the sector.
