The Kwara state Government today said it has closed down ten private schools built with wooden slabs and operating without due authorization from the state government

The state government’s health scheme entitles beneficiaries to subsidised year round basic healthcare for a N500 premium.

The Director, Quality Assurance Bureau of the Kwara Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development, Zainab Bello, told newsmen in Ilorin that the schools are unsuitable for child learning.

Bello said that these schools were closed down due to poor infrastructure and unconducive learning environment. She said that the pupils could not assimilate well in an untidy environment. The director assures of the state’s government commitment to ensure quality education, stressing that government would continue to close illegal private schools.

She expressed disappointment at the disobedience shown by some proprietors who went ahead with the schools in spite of several warnings from the state government.

Bello warned school proprietors that the state government has zero tolerance for unauthorized private schools and that those found will be dealt with to serve as deterrent to others.
