The Kano State Government has threatened to cancel third term in the state if private school proprietors fail to reduce their school fees by at least 25% before November 1, 2020.
This was disclosed by the Commissioner for Education, Muhammad Kiru, on Thursday, October 29.
Also in a statement released by the Ministry of Education Chief Public Relations Officer, Aliyu Yusuf, as quoted, the state would be left with no choice than to cancel the third term of the 2019/2020 academic session if private school owners fail to heed to the directive of the Government.
The statement explained that the decision became necessary in view of the difficult economic situation, following the COVID-19 lockdown which crippled the socio-economic position of the general public.
Recall that the Kano State Government had directed the reopening of schools in the state from October 11, 2020, after several months of closure due to COVID-19 pandemic.
