Lagos State to commence shutdown of all illegal Education Centres from September 11




Lagos State Government, through the Agency for Mass Education, has announced plans to commence shutdown of all unregistered Tutorial and Continuing Education Centres (CECs) in the State effective from Monday, September 11, 2017.

A statement issued by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Obafela Bank-Olemoh said the closure is necessitated by the refusal of some operators of Tutorial and Continuing Education Centres to comply with the State’s directive to register their Centres and pay up their annual dues after several notices from the State.

Bank-Olemoh said the government suspended an earlier clampdown on such Tutorial and Continuing Education Centres after a closed door meeting with critical stakeholders in the sector on Monday, September 26, 2016.


According to him, the stakeholders agreed to cooperate with the State in its pursuit of standardizing the educational sector in line with international best practices, while pledging their commitment to improving the quality of Education in the State by maintaining high-level standards and professionalism.  He revealed that failure of the tutorial and continuing education centres to comply with government’s directive after several follow up engagements has led to the resolve to commence the clamp down exercise, through the Agency for Mass Education, in line with Edict No 2, Section 4.3 of 1991 that mandates the Agency to control the activities of all Tutorial and Continuing Education Centres in the State.

Bank-Olemoh stated that “Lagos residents enrol in these tutorial centres and as government; we must ensure that quality service is delivered to our people. We must set standards and enforce it.”  The statement, however, urged operators of Tutorial and Continuing Education Centres across the State to get registered with the Agency for Mass Education and comply with all laid down regulations, including payment of stipulated fees, to avoid being shut down.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
