The  Kano State government has urged proprietors of private schools to reduce school fees by 25 and 30 per cent for the 2019/2020 third term.

The state Commissioner for Education, Sanusi Kiru, stated this in a statement signed by Aliyu Yusuf, the Public Relations Officer of the ministry, on Thursday in Kano.

Kiru said the ministry was considering cancellation of the third term session, if the school proprietors refuse to reduce the fees.

He said the measure was imperative in view of the economic realities occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

He said: “Two parallel adhoc committees were constituted to discuss with proprietors of the schools on the downward review of the fees as done in some states.

“Failure to do so; the ministry will cancel the third term session, and the academic calendar will commence with a new session in January 2021.”
