The Ekiti State Government has directed the closure of 131 private schools.
The order, which was given today by the state Ministry of Education, affected both primary and secondary schools.
The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Dr. Eniola Ajayi, who made this known while addressing Journalists in Ado Ekiti, said that owners of the affected schools had been warned severally to properly register them.
She said the schools were given six months deadline to meet the standard set by the state government for the running of private schools.
Ajayi, however, said that the proprietors of the affected schools remained indifferent to the directive.
She reiterated the commitment of the government to the provision of a conducive learning environment that would enhance the performance of students.
The commissioner said that government would not compromise the future of the children in the state under any circumstance.
