Just In: Makinde finally bows to pressure, modifies school resumption dates

By Tunde Olorungbotemi

Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde has finally bowed to federal government pressure, and announced that only teachers are to resume on June 29th while students in terminal classes resume a week later.

VOICEAIRMEDIA reported earlier that the oyo state Government had directed all terminal classes including Primary Six (Pry 6), Junior Secondary School Three (JSS3) and Senior Secondary School Three (SSS3) to resume on June 29 ahead of preparations for their various exams.

Recall the Federal Government had on Monday kicked against the reopening of schools in Oyo State amidst COVID-19 pandemic, describing such as “insensitive” to the health of the people.

Minister of State for Education, Mr Emeka Uwajiuba, said this at the Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 daily news conference in Abuja.

According to the minister, it is expedient to recognise the fact that Oyo State is a government operating under the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a Federating unit.

He noted that though the governor had the right to reopen the schools as he deemed fit, but added that the primary purpose of governance remained the security of its people.
