We Are Ready To Reopen Schools – South-West Government

This six South-west States have agreed to reopen schools in August to permit graduating college students sit down for the West African Senior Secondary Certificate examination (WASSCE).

This mentioned states includes; Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Osun and Ekiti.

The states’ commissioners for schooling and special advisers on training and nation customary training Board (SUBEB) reached this agreement at a virtual assembly organised by the development time table for Western Nigeria (sunrise). This shows that our government also has us at heart despite the condition of the country.

They agreed at the need for South-West states to enforce a 2016 plan to establish a local examination frame just like the meantime Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB) in the north.

A statement through the sunrise commission said the South-west states will reopen colleges for SS3 scholars on August three with COVID-19 preventive measures put in area. Put for me this is not yet enough, because most of our kinds in the house can't even spell out their names any longer. So it's better they all goes back to school, so we can use preventive measure and also pray to God to protect us.

Dawn stated the states will use the method, though, federal authorities are seeking a postponement of the WASSCE by using at least 3 weeks from the proposed resumption date. This will also help the children to refresh their memory over what they know so far, before going into the examination, if this is not done the will be a lot of mass failure this year. So if it is done. There will be a post postponement for the examination to the week beginning August 24. Then by then things will be put in place.

On resumption, they stated schools are to hire incident managers and school room wardens even as there may also be a designation of best warranty department for every country to trouble a safety compliance certificate to every of the colleges before reopening.

In addition they introduced that each state will inspire extensive advocacy campaigns to stakeholders, along with dad and mom, teachers, caregivers, faculty proprietors and pupils on what is expected of them when schools reopen.

They also referred to as on WAEC to inspire laptop-primarily based tests (CBT) in the destiny.

Earlier in the month, the federal authorities reversed its decision to reopen faculties. It additionally withdrew students of harmony faculties from writing the WASSCE scheduled for August five and September five.

Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, minister of nation for training who broke the news, appealed to state governments who have agreed to reopen colleges to reconsider the motion because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

So I believe that if all the things mentioned will be done, the government will not haste to reopen schools. So together we can make Nigeria work again.
