Mrs Elizabeth Wapmuk, the Plateau State Commissioner for Secondary Education, has said that the State Government has withdrawn the licenses of all private primary and secondary schools in the State.

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

The commissioner noted that about 90 percent of the schools do not adhere to government policies and mandates on education.

NAN reports that the ministry intends to revalidate the operating license of all private Nursery/Pre-primary, Primary, Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary Schools in the state.

The commissioner, however, explained that the exercise was to check the proliferation of illegal private schools operating in the State.

She added that it would also support those that operate within the ambit of the law, to achieve quality education for all.
