The Ondo State Government has directed all pupils and students in the state to recite the Oodua Anthem in their schools.

Among those affected by the order are all the private and public institutions from primary to tertiary level in the state.

The state Ministry of Education, Science and technology disclosed this in a circular distributed to all stakeholders signed by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr Akin Asaniyan.

The circular was titled ‘Recitation of Oodua Anthem in all schools’.

It partly read, “Please note that,  at the just concluded inter-schools debate and award ceremony organised by Ondo State Ministry of Education Science and Technology, held on Thursday, February 25,  2021, at the International Culture and Event Center (The Dome), Governor Rotimi Akeredolu,  announced that the state has adopted the Oodua Anthem and it is to be recited by the residents of the state.

“In the light of this development, Mr Governor has directed that the anthem is now compulsory in all public and private schools (primary and secondary), as well as tertiary institutions in the state, to be recited by all students and teachers henceforth.”
