197 private schools in the state have been closed by the Abia State Government due to performance standards that fall short.
Okey Kanu, the commissioner for information and culture, made this statement while informing the media of the Executive Council meeting’s results for this week.
According to Kanu, the government’s determination to reform the education sector led to the closure of the schools.
He announced that the ongoing school inspection exercise has so far resulted in inspections of about 900 schools.
According to the most recent count, about 900 schools have been inspected, and the inspection is still ongoing. Some schools are not as fortunate; they were closed because they failed the required standards test.
Additionally, he stated that the government has ordered ASUBEB employees to leave the office, explaining that “just last week, as a proactive government, staff members of THAT building were evacuated from that building because the structure was suspicious.”
