Akwa Ibom State Government close unapproved schools

About 78 unapproved private schools in Akwa Ibom State has been shut down by the state government. The schools shut down include nursery, primary and secondary schools.

This was via a statement by the Permanent Secretary in the state’s Ministry of Education, Mrs. Valerie Obot, yesterday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State Capital. The Statement said that the closure took effect from September, 4, 2017.

It added that unapproved evening schools and JAMB centres located across the three senatorial districts of the state were also affected.

The statement said the closure followed directives from Governor Udom Emmanuel.

According to the statement, the Commissioner for Education had directed the proprietors of the private schools to register and regularize their status with the ministry before August, 31, 2017 and failure of the proprietors to respond to the directives accordingly led to the closure of their schools.
