Lagos State Set To Shutdown Thousands Of Unregistered Private Schools

The Lagos State Government  is set to shutdown 10,444 unregistered private schools which littered the state. 



This follows the discovery by the state government that of the 15,000 private schools operating in the state, only 4,556 were registered. Deputy Governor of the state, Dr. Oluranti Adebule disclosed this at the 3rd quarterly stakeholders’ forum of private schools owners held at the Secretariat, Alausa in Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria on Monday.

“Government is not comfortable with our discovery that over 15,000 private schools are operating in the State and only just 4,556 are approved and registered; Let me state it clearly, henceforth, Lagos State Government will no longer allow private schools that are not duly registered by the Lagos State Ministry of Education to operate in the State, their operation becomes illegal henceforth in the State,” she warned

The deputy warned. that schools not registered or approved by the State Ministry of Education would not operate, noting that some schools failed to take the advantage the easy registration procedure put in place by the State government. 


She added that the government would soon begin enumeration of all registered private schools operating in the State from 26 September, 2016
“The enumeration exercise is aimed at providing the State government with accurate data and necessary information on private schools so as to set effective quality control mechanism in place and monitor compliance,” she stated

Why in the first place should any school be running without being registered with Government ?

  1. Nigerians love shortcuts a lot. Now the unregistered private schools would just render people jobless when they're shut down and some would be "Schooless" too....

    1. What's the goodnews about this? The unregistered once are the only ones so people can afford aside public schools. Public schools that are little or no standards too. Pls they should just concentrate on something else.

  3. Its a good initiative but the government always put the cart before the horse. How many public schools do you have in some of the sub-urb where you have this unregistered sch before you start the clamp down? When thus clamp down starts I hope you know the implications? Many more children will be out of sch because their parents can't afford fees foe registered private school and there are no public sch in their neighbourhood.
    In as much as it is good they are registered for monitoring by the ministry of Education, the government should tread with caution because of it's implications. I am sure most of them are not registered because of the money involved in the registration.

    1. Thank you, plain truth.

      The ministry if education in Lagos state has a staff member attached to every private school, who visit the school every month.

      What do they come to do? They come with their boss's mandate to collect bribe

    1. I'd never teach in an unregistered school. Mama has been complaining that all those unregistered schools make their schools so cheap that the real schools find it difficult to get enough children. I'm sure she will love this news.

      But it's none of my business. How will those people eat?

  16. That's the problem with Nigerians, we think its okay to go to an unregistered school that is not monitored because it is cheap, same thing applies to mushroom clinics just go there and get substandard or even potentially fatal treatment. i say give them one months notice and shut them down afterwards. besides the cost have you seen how barely equipped and useless some of this schools are and who is teaching? Rubbish!!!

  19. Our education system has become a pure mockery all because of schools A, B, C, D, E, F and so on. Many proprietors are business oriented and not interested in the education and welfare of the kids. See for instance the news of the boy who drank that poisonous substance in his school when all the little boy had been asking for was water. What reasonable school has a soap making factory within its environs? The boy is dead now and from what we hear, the proprietor is nowhere to be found.
    What many people don't understand is that education is the future of this nation. If we trade quality education for quantity, we'll miss the point. I know that there exist many schools of good reputation that are affordable for parents but they have to be registered. Let's stop sending our kids to schools that have half-baked teachers and minders.
    Even the government school system have good teachers within its system better than most top private schools where one teacher teaches four subjects.

  21. Please come and shut this school next to my house in Satellite Town. It is in a residential quarters. I'm sure the State Government did not give them permission to operate acsecondary school from a three bedroom apartment in a residential neighborhood. I've been looking for someone to complain to about this school. The children, who are not to blame play drums everyday. It is like living next to a mushroom church. I am almost certain they don't have a license to operate a secondary school. Hopefully, this will get them out of here.
