The Anambra State Government has announced the closure and withdrawal of approval of Royal Ambassador’s Schools in Onitsha, for flouting COVID-19 prevention protocols.

Dr Christy Obiano, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Basic Education, in a statement on Thursday said that the closure would serve as a lesson to others.

According to him, the school violated the government’s directives which stipulated that students and pupils remain at home till Feb. 1, in the interest of their safety.

“The Ministry of Basic Education wishes to announce the closure and withdrawal of approval of the Royal Ambassador’s Schools at Onitsha for violating the government’s resumption directives.

“Students and pupils of the schools were also seen without face masks, on Monday, Jan. 18, receiving lessons against government’s directives.

“The schools’ fragrant disobedience to government’s directives can endanger the lives of children, and it is not in the best interest of education in the state.

“Parents are, however, advised to withdraw their children from the schools, which remain closed,” he said.
