Kano directs private schools to reduce fees by 25%



Proprietors of private schools in Kano State have been directed to reduce their fees by a minimum of 25 per cent or face sanctions.

The government had set up a committee to liaise with the school owners on what percentage of fees to be reduced.

Commissioner for Education, Muhammad Kiru who gave the directive said the Education ministry will be left with no option than to cancel the third term of the 2019/2020 academic session if private school owners do not comply with the directive.

Kiru said the decision of the ministry became necessary in consideration of the hard economic condition experienced as a result of the lockdown by the menace of COVID-19.
