Pupils and students in public and private schools have been directed by the Ondo state government to stay at home following the tension generated by the #EndSARS protests.
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu said the order which will be effective from Wednesday, October 21, said it became necessary because of the engulfing nationwide protest and the need to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
The statement read;
I have 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 the 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.
