The Plateau Government has revoked the licence of all Nursery, Primary and Secondary schools operating in the state.

The State Commissioner of Education, (secondary), Elizabeth Wampum, disclosed this at a press conference on Thursday.

According to the commissioner, the decision was taken after the realisation that over 5000 private schools were operating without license.

She said 90% of private schools in Plateau do not adhere to government policies and mandates, adding that 85% of the 495 private schools earlier granted licenses had compromised.

She said, “This is to inform the general public that the operating license of all private Nursery/Pre-primary, Primary, Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary Schools in the State will have to revalidate their certification.”

The commissioner however said the exercise was to check the proliferation of illegal Private Schools and to support those that operate within the ambit of the law, to achieving quality education for all.
