In addition, he said the ministry had blocked their accounts and permanently deleted the numbers assigned to these two schools in examinations administered by the Monrovia office of the West African Examinations Council.

He cautioned the institutions thinking that they are not under the Ministry of Education, should operate in the sky, but once they are in the airspace of Liberia, the ministry will exercise its jurisdiction.
