The Enugu State government, on Tuesday, August 30, announced the shutting down of all unapproved private primary and secondary schools in the state.

The state commissioner for education, Prof Uche Eze, who made the disclosure said the decision was reached due to the proliferation of sub-standard private schools across the state. He explained that school owners are by law, required to register and seek approval from the ministry of education before commencing operations, however, most of the schools have been found wanting.
