The Kano State government has taken steps to enforce that all private and voluntary institutions in the state comply with the compulsory 25% reduction of third term school fee.
However, the private schools owners in the state vowed to kick against the directive.
In a bid to ensure full compliance, the government therefore invoked the state’s Private and Voluntary Institutions Law 2014.
The state government invoked sections 7(a), 28 and 29(3) of the law to empower the state Executive Secretary, Private and Voluntary Institutions Board to enforce compliance to compulsory 25% reduction on third term school fees.
Furthermore, the Commissioner for Education, Malam Muhammad Sanusi Kiru had threatened to cancel third term if the owners of private schools in the state fail to comply with the directive.
A memo, dated November 5th, by the permanent Secretary, Kano State Ministry of Education, Lauratu Ado Diso, charged the executive secretary of the board to ensure total compliance with no exception and to report back to the commissioner in due course.
