Oyo State Government Lists Guidelines For Schools Resumption

The Oyo state government has announced some important guidelines that schools are expected to follow to ensure a smooth resumption in the state.


The State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology,  Olasunkanmi Olaleye who made the announcement on Wednesday July 1, said school heads, principals and teachers have undergone training on how to monitor and report any suspected case of Coronavirus.


An Emergency Operation Centers (EOCs) has been set up in the State capital and at the zonal levels. Incident Managers have also been appointed for each school in the state, and they are expected to report any emergency directly to the EOCs through special communication lines.



Each class will also have Warder whose obligation is to relate with the Incident Managers on his or her observations. Schools in the state must also observe compulsory hand-washing points at its entrances and at the entrance of each classroom. Alcohol-based sanitizers must also be provided for students and teachers.


Olusunkanmi said;


“Throughout last week, what we have been doing was to train school heads and teachers of public and private schools, preparing them for this task of taking firm control of preventing the spread of Covid-19 into our schools as we resume.

“Each school has been mandated to strictly enforce social distancing and observe other protocols against Covid-19 among teachers and students as laid down by NCDC.

“Students are to come to school with their facemasks and follow instructions on the guidelines from the management, these are imperative the government cannot lock down forever and education is an aspect of life that should not be allowed to suffer backwardness.

“I can boldly tell you that with these measures in place, the children are more safer with us in school than even many homes, imagine situations whereby students are asked to go to private lessons that provided no safety measure, many follow their parents to the market and workplaces where possibility of contracting the virus is high, so they are rather better kept at school than home.”

The Commissioner also allayed fears of members of the public on risks associated with reopening of schools.

This is coming after the state government announced that teachers of public schools in the State are to resume on June 29, while students are to resume on July 6.

Williams Uchemba-EndSARS Movement Requires Leadership Structure



Actor Williams Uchemba Calls for Leadership Structure in EndSARS Movement

Actor and Comedian Williams Uchemba has stressed the need for a leadership structure in the #EndSARS protests worldwide.

Williams Uchemba stated that any movement without leadership will eventually fizzle out and die.
Uchemba maintained that the need for leadership is to ensure that there is focus, strategy, negotiations, execution and evaluation.

In his words;

“Anything without leadership will die and fizzle out. It might have began organically but it needs leadership for focus, strategy, negotiations, execution and evaluation.

If we get carried away with our emotions and not put a proper leadership structure in place, this movement will be hijacked and when that happens, we have no only failed our generation but might not be given a golden opportunity such as this, to change our nation for good anytime soon.”

Williams went on to write an open letter to the government. His letter reads

Dear Nigerian Government,

I know you’ve been wondering the people championing this protest, I know you’ve been asking yourselves why the protest is still going on after agreeing to do everything the Nigerian youth have asked, I know you been asking and investigating who the leader of this protest is and how you can stop this new movement that has been on for days now. Well in case you don’t know this protest is no longer about ending police brutality ( as that is just one out of a lot to address), this is about the pain and frustration the Nigerian citizens have been going through for years, this is about the over 40 million people who after four or five years of schooling can’t find a job, this is about people that their loved ones died in the hospital over a very little issue because of the poor health care system, this is about people that after working for years can’t even have access to their pension money, this is about new business and entrepreneurs the Nigerian government have Frustrated because of all the unnecessary charges on a baby business thereby shutting the business down, this is about years and years of living in darkness when every year we hear about the billions and billions of naira that is put into the electricity system in this country, I could go on and on to tell you why this protest is happening, I can tell you for free that the people have had enough and have woken up in Unity with one voice and you can’t break that because POWER BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE. #restructureNigeria #giveusbasicamenities”.
