The Plateau state government has revoked the licenses of all private Nursery, Primary and Secondary schools in the state.
The State Commissioner of Education, (secondary), Elizabeth Wampum made this known on Thursday, August 4.
This was following the discovery that over 5000 private schools were operating without license.
According to Wampum, 90% of private schools in Plateau do not adhere to government policies and mandates, adding that 85% of the 495 private schools earlier granted licenses had compromised.
In her words:
“This is to inform the general public that the operating license of all private Nursery/Pre-primary, Primary, Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary Schools in the State will have to revalidate their certification.”
