Hanifa: Kano govt revokes operational licences of all private schools

Access Bank
Kano State Government, on Monday, revoked the certificates of operation of all private schools in the state for revalidation.

Commissioner for Education, Mr Muhammad Sanusi-Kiru, made the disclosure while briefing newsmen in Kano.

Sanusi-Kiru hinged the decision by the state government, on the murder of Hanifa Abubakar, a five-year-old pupil of Noble Kids Comprehensive College allegedly by the proprietor of the school.

He said that the withdrawal of the certificates of operation of the private schools was to allow for revalidation and screening of the proprietors of those schools.

“All the certificates issued to private schools in the state are hereby revoked.

“The ministry has constituted a committee that will look into the registration of all private schools.

“The ministry will bring out criteria for the recertification of all private schools, which include Ministry of Justice and Department of State Services (DSS),” the commissioner said.

Others, he said, were: the police, Fire Service, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Kano State Road Traffic Agency and other government officials.
