The Kaduna State Government on Thursday lifted the suspension on Future Leaders International Schools, Unguwan Rimi, Kaduna State, shut down over violation of Coronavirus (COVID-19) about a year and five months ago.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Dr. Yusuf Saleh, said this in a statement on Thursday.
Saleh said the government had lifted the suspension and restored its operating licence.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the state government had on June 11, 2020 revoked the licence of the school and shut it down for operating in defiance of the state COVID-19 Quarantine Order.

The then Commissioner for Education, Dr Shehu Makarfi, said that the action of the school contravened the provisions of the order which directed all schools in the state to remain closed.
Saleh, however, said that the Kaduna State Government had granted approval for the resumption of all academic activities at Future Leaders International Schools with effect from Monday Nov. 8.
“Parents and guardians may wish to contact the school for information about the recommencement of academic sessions for their children and wards.
“The Ministry of Education wishes to remind proprietors of private schools of their obligations for strict compliance with laws and regulations,” he said.
