Edo bans use of school premises, roads for social events
The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has banned the use of all public school premises, roads and other public places for social events.
A statement signed yesterday by the Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Paul Ohonbamu, and made available to journalists said the government frowned at the behavior and would no longer accept it.
“By our ancestry as Edo people, we have always shown the example of public order and decency which others have emulated over the years and this administration is determined to make Edo a model of magnificence and beauty once again,” the statement said.
While urging all agencies of government to enforce compliance, the statement warned that any violation of the decision of government would be dealt with in accordance with extant laws.
