Rotimi Akeredolu, governor and governor-elect of Ondo State, has ordered the closure of all schools which reopened yesterday across the state.
Mr Akeredolu who announced this today cited violence against peaceful protesters demanding the reform of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) as his reason.
“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 safety of our students and staff,” the governor said in a statement.
“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 resumption of our schools as soon as possible,” Akeredolu added.
