The Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, has shut down 23 private schools considered substandard.
Everyevery.ng gathered that the offences that led to the schools’ closure include dirty teaching environment, unqualified teachers, non-renewal of licenses and operating without a permit.
According to the Osun State Commissioner for education, Folorunso Oladoyin, the move is to perfect the government’s efforts to sanitise the education sector for better results.
The Commissioner said the State government would not relent to give quality education to Osun students. Oladoyin urged the school supervisors in Osun to fish out more substandard private schools.
He noted that the state government is determined to produce critical thinkers who can be globally competitive.
However, the Commissioner advised private schools owners who are not registered with the state’s Ministry of Education should do so as soon as possible.
The affected schools include Hephzibah Kiddies, Ejigbo; Najeemdeen Model Schools, Ejigbo; Favour of God secondary school, Okinni; Omolara Nursery And Primary School, Iwo, among others.
