Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola has ordered the reopening of the three tertiary institutions of learning shut on March 18 in the wake of the violent protest and disturbance of peace in Ilesa.
The Institutions are: the Osun State College of Education, Ilesa; the School of Health Technology, Ilesa and the Osun State College of Technology, Esa Oke.
According to the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Adeniyi Adesina, the schools are to reopen immediately to continue with their normal academic activities.
He said the decision to reopen the institutions was taken after due consultations with stakeholders.
He said the stakeholders agreed that peace should continue to reign and that the students would henceforth behave in line with the Omoluabi ethos which the state is noted for.
He said Oyetola advised the students to desist from taking the law into their hands and to exploit legitimate channels to pursue their grievances.
Adesina said the governor warned that the government would not tolerate any resort to violence in expression of any grievance.
