Twenty-four hours after the resumption of schools in Ondo State, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has directed all schools in the state to close down
It was gathered that the development was not unconnected with the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the state.
In a statement issued by the state Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, Mr Femi Agagu, on Tuesday, the governor said the directive was given for the sake of the safety of the students and the pupils.
The statement read, “Mr Governor has directed that all schools that resumed on Monday 19th October 2020 are closed for the meantime from tomorrow 21st October 2020 because of the engulfing nationwide protest and the need to ensure safety of our students and staff.
“Parents and the public are to note this directive and all schools are to comply.
“Any inconvenience is regretted, while the State Government would ensure the resumption of our schools as soon as possible.”
