In the wake of the violent protest in Ondo State, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has said schools will continue to stay closed.
The governor said pupils and students must wait until total normalcy returns before they resume academic activities.
Akeredolu disclosed this at a press briefing on Sunday.
Schools were billed to resume on October 19, having been shut since the outbreak of COVID-19 in March.
But the governor said it will remain shut following the social unrest of the End SARS protests witnessed in the state and other parts of the country.
Akeredolu also emphasized that the move was made in the overall interest of the students.
“Already, our children are billed to return to school after the disruption occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic. Having assessed the situation in the last few days, we are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that our children must still remain at home for the time being.” the Governor stated.
