No fewer than 88 schools have been closed down by the Kwara State government in two months.
This was made known on Thursday, October 13, 2016 by the state Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Alhaji Musa Yeketi.
Yeketi made the diclosure in Ilorin while delivering his address at the 2016 Day of the National Association of Proprietors of Private School.
He threatened sub-standard schools to either upgrade or risk being shut down as the administration would continue to work relentlessly to ensure they maintain the set standard for the education system in the state.
The commissioner acknowledged the impact of private schools in complementing the state government’s efforts, and appealed to owners of the illegal schools to regularise their operations.
