Enugu bans unauthorised use of school premises for activities
Enugu State Government has placed a ban on social or sporting activities at the state’s public educational institutions without approval, insisting that such approvals must be obtained upon request through the appropriate board or agency.
The Commissioner for Education, Prof. Uche Eze, announced the directive following alleged attempts by some individuals to vandalise and steal facilities at the basic, secondary and tertiary levels in the state.
In a statement issued by the commissioner in Enugu, yesterday, the government stated that the unpatriotic and callous acts were inimical to the efforts of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration in pursuing quality education for the people of the state.
He stressed that the state government had invested heavily in the construction, renovation and equipping of educational institutions at all levels.
Eze further directed heads of primary, secondary and tertiary institutions to henceforth ensure proper clearing of the school environment and restriction of unauthorised entrance into school premises to avoid any fire outbreak during the dry season.
“All heads of primary, secondary and tertiary institutions are, therefore, directed to ensure strict compliance,” the statement stressed.
