Ekiti State Government has directed Area Education Officers and Tutors-General to identify and close down all unregistered private schools across the state.

This directive also affects centres where examination malpractices is the trade, otherwise known as “miracle centres”.

The Commissioner for Education, Mr Foluso Daramola gave the directive in Ado Ekiti at a meeting with the three Tutors-General and the sixteen Local Government Area Education Officers.

He pointed out that many illegal and substandard private schools were operating in the state.

This directive includes a call for the prosecution of the proprietors of such illegal schools.

Mr Daramola noted that some of the approved private schools had also deviated from the operational guidelines issued to them by the government, vowing that owners of such schools would henceforth be sanctioned.

The commissioner promised that the government would do everything possible to sanitize the education sector through effective implementation of policies and programme in the sector.

Speaking on behalf of others, the Tutor-General for Ekiti Central, Mr Biodun Omotoso expressed the readiness of the Area Education Officers and the Tutors-General to embark on aggressive monitoring when schools finally reopen.
