The Federal Government is set to announce resumption date for all classes-Minister of Education Adamu Adamu disclosed.
Why speaking he said;
The resumption date ‘September 7’, circulating the social media should be disregarded.
Furthering, he said, the resumption date for all classes will be announced next week.
“Before delving into the Crux of this press text; which is basically to update the general public, most especially the students’ populace the takeaway of today’s protest which commenced from Unity Fountain in Abuja to the Federal Ministry of Education in demanding for serious and decisive action to be taken on safe re-opening of schools nationwide by the Federal Government.
Foremost, I commend the resilience and commitment of all Students’ Union Presidents and the entire Nigerian students for mobilising massively towards the historic walk that was embarked upon today by the association despite the threat of fire and brimstone by the Department of State Security.”
It is on record that the Department of State Security had earlier threatened to gun down Nigerian students should any protest held today towards showing dissatisfaction towards continuous closure of schools with no end in sight. History, they say is an albatross; you cannot force it to move, but, when it moves, it moves with purpose.
“Anybody who closes a school for any reason whatsoever is an enemy of the state”- Tai Solarin
“This statement is not only true but profound. As an association, we believe that we would not have been here agitating for reopening of schools if not for years of governmental failure to massively invest in the educational sector. Clearly, the failure of the government to invest in education contributes significantly as to why Nigerian students are home while their schools remain closed with no hope as to when schools would be reopened. The fact that our schools have been closed for close to 5 months with the government not taking any step towards ensuring that academic activities commences is a pointer to the fact that Nigeria as a country is in serious crisis.

Indeed, there is wisdom in the saying of Martin Luther King Jnr. that “freedom is never given voluntarily by the oppressor, it must be demanded by the oppressed.” NAUS V.President, Aruson David say.

Today, the national leadership of the association was summoned into a meeting during the heat of the protest that held from Unity Fountain to the Federal Ministry of Education. The meeting had in attendance several Directors including a representative of the Minister of Education where we pushed some pro-students demands which include but not limited to;
Safe reopening of schools.
Provision of palliative for Nigerian students ahead of resumption.
Provision of facemasks and all other safety kits needed to curb the spread of covid-19.
Rehabilitation of health centres across tertiary institutions in the country.
An interface between the Federal Ministry of Education and NURTW towards ensuring that there is no unreasonable astronomical increase in transport fares as students prepare to travel back to their institutions.
However, the representative of the Minister of Education promised to relay our demands to the Minister and he also spoke on behalf of the Minister that a meeting would be convened next week to discuss reopening of schools and that a press text shall be issued to that effect to announce date for school reopening as soon as the meeting is concluded. Conclusively, the students’ community were told to disregard the news flying round social media that schools resumes on the 7th of September, 2020.

images 56 2 Oyo queries five schools for noncompliance

At least five private and public schools were on Monday sanctioned by the Oyo State Government over non-compliance of extant guidelines for the resumption of schools in the state.

The Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran, who stated this during state-wide monitoring of schools in Ibadan, however, refused to give details of the affected schools.

During the compliance monitoring, Dr. Adeniran who led a team of management members from the Standard and Quality Assurance Department of the state’s ministry of education frowned at the poor compliance by teachers and pupils in some schools.

Many of them were seen without facemasks and flouting social distancing instructionsHe said in some schools, the compliance level was not encouraging while teachers absconded in others leaving pupils flouting the extant guidelines.

Schools visited included Methodist Primary School, Agbeni; Islamic Mission School, Yemetu; Ratibi Muslim School, Molete, St. Bredan’s Primary School, Kumapayi, Egbeda; Abadina Primary School, UI and St. Thomas Primary School I, II & III, Also, public and private schools on Monday reopened in Ogun State amid low adherence to coronavirus safety guidelines by the students and teachers.This came as parents expressed worry over the safety of their children.

The state government had two weeks ago ordered the reopening of schools after almost six months under lock and key as part of efforts to flatten the curve of COVID-19.

The government, however, directed that schools hours be staggered as follows for public schools: Primary 1 to primary 3 – 8.00 am to 11.00am, Primary 4 to Primary 6 – 12.00noon to 3.00pm, JSS 1 to JSS3 – 8.00am to 11.00am, SS1 to SS3 – 12.00noon to 3.00pm.

When our correspondent visited some schools, hundreds of students were seen at the entrances of their school premises with many of them flouting the COVID-19 protocols.

There was no provision for handwashing and sanitising in some of the schools.

At the Abeokuta Grammar School, Idi – Aba, it was observed that the two sanitising booths provided at the gate were faulty and as a result, thousands of students were allowed into the premises unchecked.

A parent of two students in the school, Mr. Ahmed Salau, told Daily Trust that it was not safe to reopen schools now following what he called “ill-preparation by the state government.”

Another parent, Mr. Wale Ogunlaja bemoaned the high population of students in public schools, alleging that both government and school managements failed to prepare adequately for the resumption of students.

Many primary and secondary schools in Lagos State on Monday reopened for physical classes after about six months lockdown occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our reporters who monitored the reopening of schools in the state observed that many schools enforced the COVID-19 protocols given by the state ministry of education’s office of education quality assurance.

At Government Senior and Junior College, Agege, the students observed social distancing as they queued to get their body temperature checked with e -infrared thermometer from where they proceeded to wash and sanitise their hands.

However, while the students adhered to safety protocols within their school premises, many of them were seen chatting and moving closer to each other without a face mask after school hours.
