The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) yesterday said it would shut down any school that failed to comply with the ongoing process of revalidation/registration and data capturing of the Department of Quality Assurance of the Education Secretariat.

The FCT Permanent Secretary, Mr Olusade Adesola made this known at a meeting to address the low compliance by private schools in the FCT.

Adesola, who expressed displeasure over the slow pace of compliance by private schools, added that the FCT revenue driven by departments, boards and agencies will not be compromised.

Adesola said the process of revalidation/registration and data capturing is part of the requirements for operating schools in the FCT.

He cautioned schools that are in the act of obstructing officials of the FCT Administration from accessing their schools for routine inspection to desist forthwith or face the full wrath of the law.

He said the noncompliance to the guidelines and non-payment of the approved annual/accreditation charges by some private school owners could impair the smooth operations of the education sector.

He extended the revalidation, registration and data capturing exercise to December 31 2022, to allow the successful completion of the process.
