Elizabeth Wapmuk, the Plateau Commissioner for Secondary Education, has said that the State Government has withdrawn the licenses of all private primary and secondary schools in the state.

Ms Wapmuk told the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Jos that the decision was taken having discovered that 5,000 private schools were operating in the state illegally.
