Plateau government revokes licenses of all private primary and secondary schools

The state government has revoked the licenses of every private nursery, primary, and secondary school currently operating in Plateau.

Elizabeth Wampum, the state commissioner of secondary education, made the announcement on Thursday, August 4.

Over 5000 private schools were found to be operating without a license, prompting the decision.

Wampum, who claimed that 90% of Plateau’s private schools disregard government regulations and directives, also claimed that 85% of the 495 previously licensed private schools had broken the law.

She said; 

“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.”

Wampum further disclosed that the decision was taken to check the proliferation of illegal Private Schools and to support those that operate within the ambit of the law, with the aim of achieving quality education for all.
