COVID-19: Oyo postpones school resumption dates

• ’Govt spent N3b in fighting virus’
Oyo State Government has made adjustments to the earlier released resumption schedule of schools in the state.

The newly released guideline directs that only teachers are to resume on June 29th and terminal students will resume a week later.

The government had earlier directed all terminal classes, including Primary Six, Junior Secondary School Three (JSS3) and Senior Secondary School Three (SSS3) to resume on June 29, ahead of preparations for their various exams.

According to reports, the change in schedule was mandated by latest expert report, which indicated the non-readiness of schools in terms of meeting the various government protocols.

A statement issued by Governor Seyi Makinde’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, confirmed that the Commissioner for Education, Mr. Olasunkanmi Olaleye and experts from the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) had been going round the schools to determine compliance with the COVID-19 prevention protocols put in place by the schools.

The government said on Tuesday it has spent N2.779 billion in the ongoing fight against the novel coronavirus.
