Parents whose children are found hawking in Ekiti State will henceforth be arrested.
This is the threat by the governor of the state, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
Fayemi issued the threat on Saturday during a meeting with stakeholders in the education sector.
According to his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olayinka Oyebode, the governor called on parents in the state to take advantage of the free education policy in the state for their children.
He said his administration was committed to restoring the lost glory of the state known as the “Fountain of Knowledge.”
Stressing that his government would groom the children to become good future leaders through qualitative education, he assured that the state government would soon embark on the employment of qualified and competent teachers.
That, he said, would raise the standard of education in the state.
