Edo bans use of school premises, roads for so­cial events

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Us­man. A. Bello, Benin

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.
