30 Schools In Kano Shut Down For Evading To Pay Tax

Kano State Task Force on Private Schools, established by the Government of Rabiu Kwankwaso to check the proliferation of illegal private schools in the state, has sealed up the premises of Nigerian/Turkish International Schools and 29 others educational institutions over alleged failure to pay appropriate taxes to government and sundry offences.

Some other alleged crimes by the schools included arbitrary increase in schools fees, failure to adhere to government-approved school calendar for 2012/2013 and the absence of administrative block with Principal/Head Teachers’ offices.

Other reasons adduced by the task force were non-standard school laboratory/library in the case of secondary schools, non-functional administration and academic records such as log book, admission register, visitor’s books, syllabus and schemes.

At a briefing in Kano, Chairman of the task force Muhammad Umar, said government would reverse its action “if the affected schools show remorse and state in writing to comply with existing rules.”
