Kano State Government has call on the proprietors of private schools to reduce school fees by 25 and 30 per cent for the 2019/2020 Third Term academic session.
The state’s Commissioner for Education, Sanusi Kiru, disclosed this in a statement signed by Aliyu Yusuf, the Public Relations Officer of the ministry, on Thursday in Kano.
He noted that the ministry was considering cancellation of the Third Term session if the school proprietors remained adamant to reduce the fees.
Kiru said the measure was imperative in view of the economic realities occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Two parallel ad-hoc committees were constituted to discuss with proprietors of the schools on the downward review of the fees as done in some states.
“Failure to do so; the ministry will cancel the Third Term session, and the academic calendar will commence with a new session in January 2021.
“Proprietors of private schools should appreciate the support they enjoyed from the state government and extend the same gesture to the good people of the state,” he said.
