This is as academic activities were affected in some schools in the state on Monday as protests against police brutality and bad governance continue.
Abayomi, told The PUNCH that the Ministry of Education is awaiting a directive from the governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to order the schools’ closure.
He said, “We are considering the option of asking the students to stay at home, for now, pending when the protests will be over.
