Lagos to shutdown unregistered tutorial, continuing education centres
Effective Monday, September 19, 2016, all unregistered tutorial and continuing education centres in Lagos State would be shutdown. This was disclosed by the state’s Ministry of Education, through the Agency for Mass Education (AME).
A statement issued yesterday from the Office of the Special Adviser (SA) on Education to the Governor, noted that government having issued demand notice since September last year, to all the centres in the state will begin to clamp down on defaulters by next month.
The statement quoted the SA, Mr. Obafela Bank-Olemoh, as saying that the “Governor Akinwunmi Ambode -led administration would not relent in its effort to properly regulate every sub-sector in education in the state. We will do all in our powers to improve the quality of education in the state; set standards across board and ensure they are met.
“These centers serve the needs of many Lagosians, and we are committed to ensure that high quality service is delivered. AME has therefore, commenced the registration of all centres in the state, and the enforcement of compliance to set standards. This is in line with the Lagos State Agency for Mass Education Edict 1990, Section 4 (2, 3) that mandates the agency to control activities of all Continuing Education/ Tutorial Centres in the State.
“Having distributed demand notice to centres since September 2015, the government will commence closure of all unregistered tutorial centres in the state, effective September 19, 2016.”
