The Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education has announced the immediate closure of Brikama Methodist Upper Basic and Senior Secondary School and Longman Memorial Lower Basic School for failing to comply with regulations in allowing the teaching of Islamic Education in the schools.

The schools were closed after several attempts by the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education to ensure adherence to National Education Regulations, a statement issued by the Ministry said Thursday.

The Ministry noted that the act contravened the Laws of the Gambia CAP 46:01 sub-section 38a Vol 7 of the 1997 Constitution.
