Schools Set To Reopen On Monday
“Most appropriate time to open schools is September.” – Dr Casmir Ifeanyi, National Publicity Secretary, Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN).
“Safety and health of all is paramount.” – Haruna Danjuma, National President, National Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria (NAPTAN).
“Healthy Factor Takes Pride of Place.” – Adesina Adedoyin, Lagos State Chairman, Nigeria Union Of Teachers (NUT).
The Minister of State for Education, Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba has described the decision by the Oyo State Government to reopen schools as insensitive. Several others have also branded the plan by the Oyo State Government as “suicidal”.
The Oyo State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Olasunkanmi Olaleye, said the state government would go ahead with the plan and that the government is ready to intervene in any school and salvage the situation should a teacher or pupil become symptomatic.
