The Proprietress of Enal International Schools, Kuje, Mrs Enechojo Stella Alfa, has made a passionate appeal to the government to come to the aide of private school owners in the country.

Alfa said fresh incentives for private school owners have become imperative in veiw of the economic dislocation suffered by many parents as a result of the global Covid-19 Pandemic.

She told reporters during a chat at the weekend, that private school owners were struggling to keep their schools open as the pandemic negatively impacted the sources of income of many families, adding that government should come up with facilities specifically tailored to meet the urgent needs of private schools in the country in view of the huge gap they fill in the educational sector of the country. 

Emphasising that education was very critical to the development any society, she said: “It is through education that nations attain greatness.  Investors in the educational sector of the nation's economy should not only be commended, but also encouraged".  

“Investing in the education sector cannot be said to be driven solely by profit motives, but rather by the desire to ensure quality transformation of the larger society. It is therefore necessary that those who opted to invest in the educational sector should be encouraged as they are helping government drive it's development objectives".

Alfa pleaded with parents to see private school owners as their partners in their quest to equip their wards with what is needed to face the challenges of an ever changing world. 

Enal International Schools Kuje is one of the leading private schools in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and offers co-educational day and boarding facilities.

Established in 2006/2007 academic session, the school has grown to boost of a Creche, Nursery, Primary as well as Junior and Secondary sections.
