12 private schools closed in Anambra over strike

Anambra state government has announced the closure of 12 private schools in the state, following their decision to embark on strike over alleged extortion by the government.
The state Commissioner for Basic Education, Prof Kate Omenugha, on Tuesday accused them of engaging in irregularities.
The schools are Jubilee Secondary School, Jonjay Comprehensive Secondary School, Redemption Model Secondary School, Higher Achievers Secondary School and Spencer Secondary School.
Others are City High Secondary School, Summit Comprehensive College, Dominion Comprehensive Secondary School, Keep Looking to Jesus Comprehensive Secondary School,  Azia Comprehensive Secondary School, Star Light Secondary School, Ogbunike and Bilingual Secondary School.
Omenugha said, “It is unheard of that private schools will embark on a strike without writing to the ministry. Anambra State is the only state granting subvention to private schools. In the last administration, they were given N2.5m for laboratories, as well as buses.’’
