EBOLA: Ogun announces Oct 8 as school resumption date
« on: September 20, 2014, 06:15:36 AM »

The Ogun State Government on Friday announced Wednesday October 8, 2014 as the new resumption date for both public and private schools in the state.

The Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Taiwo Adeoluwa, stated this at the Governor?s Office press centre, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.

Adeoluwa said the new date was chosen after series of meetings with stakeholders on the measures to prevent pupils from contracting Ebola Virus Disease when schools resume.

He said the stakeholders include state chapters of Nigeria Union of Teachers, Academic Staff of Secondary Schools, Association of Primary School Head teachers of Nigeria, National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools and All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools.

He said, ?Since the Ebola scourge broke out in Lagos, the Ogun State Government has put many preventive measures in place.

?Apart from that, we have had series of evaluation meetings with stakeholders in the education sector, and today we all agreed that the level of preparedness in putting in place preventive measures against the outbreak of Ebola in both private and public primary and secondary schools in the state, is not satisfactory enough.

?So, we have agreed that the new date for resumption should be shifted to Wednesday October 8.?

Meanwhile, teachers in the state said they would not resume until the government put adequate measures in place to prevent the outbreak of the deadly virus.

The teachers said their stand was predicated on the fact the state government had failed to put in place the necessary facilities and equipment to prevent the outbreak of the virus.

The state Chairman of the NUT, Mr. Dare Ilekoya, said the action was to protect the teachers and the pupils from contracting the disease.
