Oyo State Asks Primary 6, JSS 3 and SSS 3 Students To Resume June 29, Says Religious Centres Can Reopen

The Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force announced on Monday that students in Primary 6, Junior Secondary School 3 and Senior Secondary School 3 are to resume classes from Monday, June 29.

The task force, which made the decision public after a two-and-a-half-hour meeting presided by its chairman, Governor Seyi Makinde, added that this is to enable them to prepare for various public examinations.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, said one of the decisions reached include the resumption of classes for Primary Six, JSS3 and SSS3 students from Monday, June 29; resumption of work by all category of workers at the state secretariat from June 22; opening up of mosques and churches, which are to operate at 25 per cent capacity; and the decision to limit public gathering to not more than 25 persons.

According to the statement, students in critical classes are to resume at the end of June to ensure they are well prepared for the public examinations ahead of them.

The statement read: “The schools are to observe the COVID-19 protocols as released by the Task Force, ensure that stations for washing of hands are provided in all schools, while all students are to compulsorily wear face masks.

The resumption of critical classes at the end of June 2020 would be two clear weeks ahead of the state’s drop-dead date of July 15. By that date, it would be decided whether other categories of students will return to the classes.”
