Kogi State government has ordered the closure of all public and private schools in the state from November 18 to November 23 due to the November 21 governorship election in the state.

The Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Education, Alhaji Adamu Sheidu, confirmed the closure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lokoja.

According to him, the order affects only all primary and secondary schools in the state. He explained that the step became necessary as many of the schools will serve as temporary camps for security agents being deployed to the state for the Nov. 21 governorship election.

Sheidu said that the closure order which came into effect on Tuesday will last till Monday, Nov. 23.

He advised parents and guardians to take note of the development and ensure they keep an eye on their children during the period of the election. He also warned proprietors of private secondary and primary schools in the state against violating the order.

The state’s governorship election is expected to be keenly contested between the ruling party in the state, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
