The deputy national president of the Association of Private Schools, Hajiya Maryam Magaji, has commended the Federal Government effort for providing COVID-19 palliatives to private schools in the country.
She stated that the move would reduce the hardship situation encountered by proprietors of private schools as a result of the recent lockdown induced by the emergence of the pandemic.
The deputy national president of NAPPS, also called on Kano State Government to ensure that only registered privates schools benefit from the palliatives to be distributed to private schools.
She explained that the step would encourage those private schools that did not register with the government to do so. She explained that out of 6000 private schools in the state only about 2000 registered with the government and the association.
Magaji said as part of effort to ensure safe re-opening of school, the state government set up a committee to identify successful steps to be deployed.
She thanked the federal government for the approval to provide palliative to private schools, which follows the association’s call for support.
