Birnin Kebbi – The Kebbi State Task Force Committee on Private Schools on Friday in Birnin Kebbi ordered the closure of two private nursery and primary schools over poor standards.
The Chairman of the committee, Alhaji Aminu Muhammad, disclosed this at a news conference.
He said the affected schools are Queen Amina Nursery and Primary School and AMLAD International Nursery and Primary school, operating in the state capital.
“We cannot sit down and watch private schools operating with inadequate facilities and the required education standards.
“The affected schools lack environment conducive to teaching and learning, as well
as furniture and recreational grounds,” he said.
Muhammad said the committee had inspected 10 schools in the metropolis, stressing that the inspection would be sustained.
“We will be visiting these private schools from time to time to ensure that all of them comply with the state government standards,’’ he added.
He called on parents to monitor the studies of their wards, adding that “some private schools were established for monetary motives”.
