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.

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.
