Jones, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Pastor Emmanuel Idenyi, said Kogi State Education Law came into effect in 2020 which empowered the ministry to close down sub-standard and illegal schools.

He stressed that until the affected schools fulfilled the ministry’s conditions for operations in the state, they would remain closed.
