The Plateau Government on Thursday revoked the licenses of all nursery, primary, and secondary schools in the state.

Commissioner of Education, Elizabeth Wampum, disclosed this at a press conference.

Wampum said the decision was taken after it was discovered that 5,000 private schools were operating without a license.
