The Anambra State Government has announced the closure and withdrawal of approval of the Royal Ambassador’s Schools at number 12 Residency Drive GRA Onitsha, for violating Government’s directives mandating students and pupils to remain at home till February 1, 2021, in the interest of their safety.

The government had earlier issued a statement allowing only proprietors and teachers to resume and take two weeks from January 18, 2021, to put all the COVID-19 protocols in place, while students and pupils should resume on 1st February 2021.

According to a letter from the Ministry of Basic Education, signed by the permanent secretary, Christy Obiano conveying the closure directives, students and pupils of the schools were seen without face mask, on the 18th of January 2021, receiving lessons against Government’s directives.

The ministry viewed the schools’ fragrant disobedience to Government’s directives as endangering the lives of the children and not serving the best interest of education in the State.

It advised parents to withdraw their children from the schools which remain closed.
