Ghen Ghen! Ekiti shuts131 substandard schools

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.
