The Kano State government on Monday revoked the certificate of all private schools in the state, with educational institutions requiring revalidating their certification before continuing with operations.

This comes on the heels of the sad event that happened at Noble Kids Comprehensive College, a private school where Hanifa Abubakar, a five-year-old was kidnapped and eventually murdered by her proprietor.

The Kano state Commissioner for Education, Sanusi Kiru, announced the government’s decision to revoke all licenses at a press conference in Kano on Monday.

IN THE MEANTIME, the Special Adviser to the Cross River state Governor on Education, Castro Ezama, says the state government is proactive, in ensuring that the ugly trends in schools in other parts of Nigeria are not experienced in the state.

Speaking in an interview with our correspondent on Monday, in commemoration of the 2022 International Day of Education, Ezama who condemned the current ugly incident involving five-year-old Hanifa Abubakar, said the day should be dedicated to students who have been victims of social vices in schools.

The SA on Education, who went further to call on school administrators, traditional rulers and all those involved in providing a bright future for the young ones, also commended teachers in the state for the good work thus far.

The 2022 International Day of Education commemorated on Monday January 24th, is themed “Changing Course, Transforming Education”.
