Kebbi state government has Monday announced the indefinite suspension of academic activities of two private schools in the state.

The State Commissioner for Higher Education, Isah Abubakar Tunga made the announcement in a statement signed by his director higher education, Aliyu Shehu jega.

He mentioned the two affected private schools in the statement as; Lamido Umaru Mutube College of Advanced Studies, Health Sciences and Technology, Dakingari and SAHAM College of Health Sciences and Technology, Zuru.

According to the Commissioner, the suspension of their academic activities followed their failure to pay their annual dues of N100,000 each for two consecutive years of 2022 and 2023 respectively.

The amount incurred was N200,000 each for the two affected institutions of which all means made to ensure compliance proved abortive which eventually forced the Ministry to respond in that regard.

This development was part of the rules that granted the institutions the rights to operate academic activities in their respective disciplines and they would remain closed until they completed with the rules.
