The Ondo State Government has permitted public servants and students in both private and public schools in the state to wear native attires to office and schools on Fridays to promote culture and traditions.

The government also ordered the closure of the Ikare-Akoko Central Mosque to forestall the breakdown of law and order.

The commissioner for information and orientation, Mrs Bamidele Ademola-Olateju, disclosed this during a media briefing shortly after the state executive council meeting.

The Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Mr Adewale Akinlosotu, further explained that the council decided that for the state to preserve the Yoruba culture, public workers and students will start wearing native attires to work and schools on Friday.

“We are declaring Friday as a cultural Day. For students of both private and public schools, it is permissible to wear their cultural attire to school on Fridays.

“You will agree with me that your culture makes who you are. With Western Civilization today, culture is going into extinction. We have to make sure that we protect our culture from going into extinction.

“We want to commend Mr Governor for his interest in this sector to make sure that our culture is protected. This is one of the things we are going to be doing. Hopefully, in the future or shortly, we are going to come up with another programme that will enhance our culture,” he said.
