Osun Considers Reopening of Schools


The Osun state Government has considered reopening of schools in the state.

This was confirmed in a statement signed by the commissioner of Information and Civic Orientation Funke Egbemode.

However, following a virtual state executive council meeting by the commissione, the council had an extensive deliberation on the prospect of reopening of schools in the state. 

The statement read, ‘With respect to the reopening of schools to students  in graduating classes for the sake of writing WASCE, our schools shall be reopened after the government has put in place every necessary precaution to ensure that our children  are not exposed to the virus. Part of the measures to ensure this shall be the deployment of “Class Wardens” in schools across the State (once the reopening is announced), who will daily monitor and ensure strict compliance to the various safety guidelines.

” The State Government wishes to reiterate that the safety of every citizen of Osun, across different ages, is paramount. Hence, the government is duty-bound to take necessary steps to protect its people from actual or potential threats to lives; and that, the Oyetola-led administration shall continue to do in the best interest of the people.” The statement said.
