The administration of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi in Enugu State has directed the immediate closure of all private schools at basic and post-basic levels operating in the state without the written approval of the ministry of education.

The Commissioner for Education in the State Professor Uche Eze, in a directive, said he is in hot pursuit of constant springing up of substandard private schools in Enugu State without seeking registration or obtaining approval of the ministry as required by the law.

Eze stated that the ugly development is a source of serious concern to the government and all stakeholders in the education sector in the state, stressing that without such registration and approval, the government cannot guarantee or assure the state of infrastructure, or the quality of teaching and learning offered in such schools.

The commissioner advised all the affected persons and schools to abide strictly by the directive in their interest, stating that the state government shall in two weeks embark on the forcible closure of any defaulting school, prosecute, and punish any person or group of persons still flouting the directive.

He urged the public to take note of the illegal operation of private schools in Enugu State and be guided accordingly.
