Kaduna State Government to go after 2,000 unregistered private schools


The Kaduna State Quality Assurance Authority says it will go after over 2,000 unregistered private primary and secondary schools operating illegally in the state.

The Director-General of the authority, Hajiya Umma Ahmad, disclosed this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna on Monday.

Ahmad explained that only about 2,000 out of the over 4,000 private schools operating in the state have registered with the state government.

According to her, some of the schools have been operating in the state for over 20 years without registration to avoid regulation and evade tax payment to the government.


She assured the public that the agency would continue to go after unregistered and substandard private schools in the state, threatening that all substandard and illegal public schools would be closed.

The director general also said that the agency would soon publish the list of registered private schools in the state online to enable parents identify illegal schools and avoid them.

“We will also come up with a form of ranking of private and public schools from the best to the worst in the state, to guide parents in choosing the best school for their kids.

“This will spur competition among schools and encourage them to improve their facilities,” she added. Theguardianng
