7, 000 illegal private schools were discovered Plateau – APSON

APSON

The Plateau state chapter of the Association of Private School Owners of Nigeria (APSON) has disclosed that 7,000 illegal private schools were currently operating in Plateau.

Mr Solomon Musa, the Chairman of the association in the state disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Jos.
Musa, who described the situation as worrisome, added that such development was bad for the growth of education in the state.

 

 

 

 

 

”As I speak to you, we have 7,000 illegal private schools operating in Plateau; I’m telling you this on my authority as the chairman of APSON in Plateau.

”These schools did not obtain any operational approval from government and yet they have been operating.

 

 

 

 

 

”Yes, we are complementing government’s efforts but this is a sad development for the education sector of the state

”And because we don’t deal with anything illegal, owners of these illegal schools are not members of APSON,” he said.
Musa described the recent withdrawal of operational licenses of all private schools in the state and the ongoing revalidation exercise, as a step in the right direction.

 

 

 

 

 

He explained that such move would curtail the proliferation of private schools in the state, hence ensure quality service delivery to the people.

”Education as we all know is the bedrock of every society, and no reasonable government will want to jeopardise the education of its future generation.

 

 

 

 

 

”To make things right, government decided to withdraw all approvals giving to private schools owners; we are to come for revalidation after which we will be issued with a license to operate in the state.

”As an association, we are supporting government 100 per cent because anything that has to do with education has to be done rightly

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

”In every society, it is the government that regulates all educational activities, and so should not tolerate anyone that goes against its educational policies,” he added.

Musa, however, advised members of the association to key into the state government’s policy and avail themselves for the ongoing revalidation exercise.

Aviation Minister Explores Partnerships at Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh

 

 

The Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo SAN CON FCIarb (UK), is actively engaging with Middle East aviation leaders at the ongoing Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Hosted at the prestigious King Abdulaziz International Conference Center (KAICC), the forum marks a pivotal moment for global aviation collaboration.

At the behest of His Excellency Jassim Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti, Minister of Transport of the State of Qatar, and His Excellency Saleh Al-Jasser, Minister of Transport and Logistics of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Aviation Minister convened on the sidelines to deepen ties between Nigeria and the Middle East in the realm of air transportation and logistics.

The third edition of the Future Aviation Forum, themed “Elevating Global Connectivity,” underscores the importance of fostering innovation, sustainable air travel, and cultural exchange. By bringing together leaders from the aviation sector and adjacent industries, the forum serves as a catalyst for knowledge exchange and business opportunities in a dynamic economic sector.

Keyamo expressed gratitude to Minister Al-Sulaiti for his keen interest in Nigeria, affirming Nigeria’s openness to investment in civil aviation and other sectors of the economy. Emphasizing the importance of learning from Qatar’s success in airline operations, particularly exemplified by the global acclaim of Qatar Airways, the Minister sought collaboration to enhance Nigeria’s aviation sector.

A key proposal made by the Nigeria Aviation Minister involves encouraging Qatar Airways to patronize local catering services on its return trips to Doha from Nigeria. This initiative aligns with the principles of reciprocity outlined in the Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) and aims to stimulate Nigeria’s local economy.

As the Future Aviation Forum continues until May 22, 2024, the Minister remains committed to forging strategic partnerships that will elevate Nigeria’s aviation industry on the global stage.
