Ondo closes schools in flood- prone areas for three weeks

Meanwhile, Ondo state Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has directed public Primary and Secondary Schools submerged in the flood- prone areas to proceed on a three weeks holiday beginning from Monday, October 14, 2019 .

This directive followed flash floods that have affected most flood-prone communities, especially in the riverine areas of the State.

According to a statement issued  by the state commissioner for Information,  Donald Ojogo, this becomes necessary in order to forestall possible attendant incidents that may likely affect lives of vulnerable pupils in those areas .

All Head Teachers and Principals are  to enforce this directive; and in particular, ensure that all perishable educational materials are evacuated.

 Ojogo said Government  is working out remedial logistics believing that the floods would recede within the period of the three weeks holiday.
