Plateau Government on Thursday revoked the licenses of all nursery, primary, and secondary schools in the state.
Commissioner of Education, Elizabeth Wampum, disclosed this at a press conference.
Wampum said the decision was taken after it was discovered that 5,000 private schools were operating without a license.
The commissioner noted that about 90 per cent of the schools do not adhere to government policies and mandates.
“This is to inform the general public that the operating license of all private Nursery/Pre-primary, Primary, Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary Schools in the State will have to revalidate their certification,” Wampum said.
