• ‘Provision of adequate measures to determine school reopening’
Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has charged school owners to put their preparations at top gear for school reopening in the state.
He made this call in a virtual meeting with private school owners and stakeholders in the education sector.
He said all schools should ramp up their preparations for school reopening by keeping in place all safety measures like hand washing bay, among others.
Also speaking, Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development, Bisola Fatimoh Ahmed said school reopening, even after approval, would be based on their owners putting in place the necessary measures to protect the children and workers.
Meanwhile, the governor emphasised that gradual reopening of schools will take place when the Federal government sends the green light.
He also urged the private school owners to invest in virtual schooling if they have not done so as the pandemic and the closure of schools may drag until it is absolutely safe to reopen.
