The Abia State Government has warned the Labour Party not to disrupt academic activities at Ngwa High School, Aba, Abia State, where the party plans to flag off its campaign.

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party, Alex Otti, has scheduled his campaign to begin on November 10, 2022.

This will be with a rally billed to take place at Ngwa High School, Aba.

The government gave the warning in a letter addressed to the state LP Chairman and copied to the Department of State Services and Abia State Police Command.

The letter was signed by the Commissioner for Post Basic Education, F. C. Mark, on Tuesday.

The government advised the LP to immediately consider changing the venue of the event or seek another date when children will not be in school.

The letter reads: “Our attention has been drawn to the proposed rally of your political party at Ngwa High School, Osisioma Aba on the 10th of November 2023 by 8am and we wish to strongly advised you seek alternative venue to disruption of academic activities in the school.

“As you are aware all public and private schools in the state, including Ngwa High School in Aba are currently in session with teaching and learning ongoing. It will be wrong to set a bad precedence to chase our hard working children and their teachers in other to hold a political rally that will not only disrupt academic activities but also predisposed school properties to vandalization.

“We therefore wish to strongly advise that you immediately consider changing the venue of your planned event or seek another date when school children will not be in school.”
