Anambra clamps down on special, miracle centres
Anambra State Commissioner for Education Professor Kate Omenugha has warned proprietors of “special and miracle centres” in the state to shut down or face the law.
She said her ministry will not hesitate to take action against owners of such schools, where students rush to sit for the West African Examinations.
Omenugha gave the warning when the state branch of National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) paid her a visit yesterday.
“Special and miracle centres would be eradicated; that is one of the visions of the present administration,’’ she said.
She said the state government is determined to boost education in the state and has packaged many innovations to improve the sector.
Earlier, Mr Sunday Anaekwe, state president of the association, promised that they would cooperate with the government to ensure functional and qualitative education in the state.
