Renew Your Operational Licence Or Be Sanctioned, Osun Govt Warns Private School Owners



Osun State Ministry Of Education has warned private schools who are yet to pay and renew their operational licences to do so or face being shut down.

They are enjoined to renew their licences before the resumption of the 2023/2024 academic session that comes on the 7th September, 2023.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mr. Murtala Jimoh made this known in a press release made available to news men in Osogbo.

The Permanent Secretary through the release urged private school owners who have not paid the operational or renewal levies in respect of their schools to do so without further delay as the payment is a statuory mandate to renew the operational licence to schools.

The school owners are therefore advised to pay the levies through any of the following: directly to the Ministry of Education at block F room 9, the headquarters of the Osun Internal Revenue Service OIRS beside the State Secretariat or OIRS outstations across the State.

The Press Release reads in parts, “School owners are hereby enjoined to renew their operational licences up to date before the resumption of the 2023/2024 academic session that comes up on 7th September 2023.

“Failure to pay the levies will lead to closure of such schools as the payment is the statutory mandate to renew operational licences to schools”.
