Government Shuts Schools In Oyo

Students in Oyo State, Monday took to the streets protesting and vandalising property over the move by the state government to involve the private sector in public school administration.

The students from various schools across the state went round the city to register their displeasure over the government’s plan to introduce Public-Private Partnership in public schools.

Reacting to the protests and destruction of public property by students in the state, the Oyo State government condemned strongly the violent protest.

The government further ordered the immediate shutdown of all primary and secondary schools in the state to avoid any further breach of peace.
