Private school proprietors in Kano state have been asked to slash their school fees by at least 25% or see the third term of the 2019/2020 academic session being cancelled by the state government.

In a statement made available to newsmen by the state Commissioner of Education Muhammad Sanusi Kiru, the Kano state government said the decision of the Ministry became necessary in consideration of the hard economic condition experienced as a result of the lockdown due to the menace of COVID-19 which affected both socio-economic positions of the general public.

Kiru who affirmed that the decision was for the school owners to reciprocate gestures it enjoyed from the State Government, said two ad-hoc committees have been setup to meet with the proprietors to that effect and failure to reach a resolution will attract the action by the ministry.

The statement read;

“The decision of the Ministry became necessary in consideration of the hard economic condition experienced as a result of the lockdown due to the menace of COVID-19 which affected both socio-economic positions of the general public.

“I set up two parallel Ad-hoc Committees to discuss with owners of private schools on the percentage of school fees (25%) they are to reduce as done in about 4 – 5 states or we cancel the 3rd term of the 2019/2020 academic session so that the academic calendar will commence with a new session in January 2021.

“Proprietors of Private Schools should show some sign of appreciation for the support they enjoyed from the State Government and extend the same magnanimity to the good people of Kano State.

“If by 1st November 2020 there is no positive response, the Ministry would be left with no option than to take such a revolutionary decision in public interest.”
