By One Class

The Governor Gboyega Oyetola led Osun State Government on Thursday said public schools in the state would return to their previous uniforms before the introduction of common uniform by ex-governor Rauf Aregbesola at the commencement of the new academic session.

VOICE AIR MEDIA learnt that the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr Jamiu Olawumi, who noted that the new academic session would commence on November 9, 2020, added that at beginning of new academic calendar year, all public school students would return to their old uniforms.

Olawumi said, “Reversal of the schools’ names will take place immediately, while the reversal to the old uniforms will commence on November 9, which is the start of the new academic session.”

Commenting on the preparation for the reopening of schools, Olawumi said measures that would prevent the spread of COVID-19 pandemic had been put in place.

He said, “We want to assure all stakeholders in the state’s education sector that the administration of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has put everything in place to ensure that our pupils are safe in schools.

“Almost all sectors across the country have opened up, Covid-19 is already here with us and the situation doesn’t look like abating anytime soon, we can’t continue to keep our children at home. We just have to find a way around it, the only way is to put safety measures in place at our schools which we have done.

“Government through the Ministry of Environment have fumigated all private and public schools across the state including tertiary institutions, apart from that, we have also provided enough safety materials for both students and their teachers in all the schools.”

The single uniform policy, which was introduced by the Aregbesola administration at the commencement of the 2013/2014 academic session, saw all public primary and secondary school pupils wearing the same uniform.
