The Ondo State government has followed the footsteps of the Lagos State by closing down educational institutions due to the rising tensions between the youth and the political class.
Yesterday, we reported that, the Lagos State government has ordered for the closure of all learning institutions in the State due to the ongoing #EndSARS protest in the country.
Earlier today, the Ondo State government also released a Statement where they revealed that all schools, both public and private are to close down effective, tomorrow, October 21.
The state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu noted that, the move is necessitated by the nationwide outrage by the youth in their quest to get SARS disbanded. He appealed to residents of the State to abide by the directive.
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 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 resumption of our schools as soon as possible.”
