The decision of Cross Rivet State Governor, Prof Ben Ayade to reopen schools has been thwarted by officials of Nigera Centre for Diseases Control (NCDC)
Report has it that the officials have swoop in and chased away students of West African People’s Institute (WAPI) who arrived at 8am today Tuesday 16 June 2020 to resume school.
The school was among those in the three Senatorial Districts the State Governor directed the previous week to resume on a trial basis.
The others are Government Secondary School, Igoli Ogoja, in the North Senatorial District and Government Secondary School, Ikom in the Central Senatorial District.
