The Zamfara State government invalidated 500 operational licensed private schools in the state, saying the action was taken to scrutinized the educational system in Zamfara state.

Dr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, the State Commissioner for Education revealed this to journalist during an interview in Gusau, Zamfara state capital.

Dr. Ibrahim explained that thorough measures would be prepared for any private school that want to be reinstalled with a new operational license to fulfil before it can be reconsidered.

Commissioner said, “When the administration of Bello Mohammed Matawalle took over the reign of power in the state, he realized that the government had almost lost control of the supervision of the operation of these private schools as there was no control mechanism set up by the state ministry of education which empowers the government to monitor its operations”.

Dr Abdulahi added that a situation whereby a proprietors is only requested to pay the sum of N30,000 for the issuance of operational license was unallowed, adding that after that, private schools does not add any value to the state government despite huge amount of money these private school operators collecting from parents and guardians.

Commissioner said further that his ministry had already prepared a bill which will any moment be sent to the state of Assembly for passage, after which he said the law will give the state ministry of education to have full control of what private schools are doing in the state.
