The Kwara State government has closed down 10 private schools that are illegal and unsuitable for learning and assimilation.
Zainab Bello, director, Quality Assurance Bureau of the Kwara ministry of education and human capital development, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the schools had been operating without due authorisation.
Citing poor infrastructure and conducive learning environment, Bello said the state government would continue to close illegal private institutions.
“These schools are built with wood slabs and the surrounding could not be said to be suitable for human beings, talk-less of little children.
“The children are packed and sandwiched in the untidy classrooms demarcated with slabs.
“There is no way any child can receive sound education in uncompleted buildings; that is why the Quality Assurance Bureau team is fishing out illegal private schools in the state.”
The affected schools are; New Creation Nursery and Primary School, Adabata; Habitat Nursery and Primary School; Al- Salam Nursery and Primary School; Allahu Samad Arabic School as well as Almalik Nursery and Primary School.
Great Success Nursery and Primary School, Isale Aluko; Aduni Success Islamic and Arabic International Model Center Ajikobi; Ridwanulkahi Nursery and Primary School, Isale Aluko; Alubarka Nursery and Primary School, Ajikobi and Almubashirina Nursery and Primary School, Ajikobi, are among the others.
