Lagos, Osun And 4 Others States Agree To Reopen Schools.

The six southwestern states have agreed to reopen schools for SS3 students to participate in the West African School Certificates (WASCE) exam next month.

The states are Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Osun and Ekiti.

Their decision is contrary to the position of most of the 19 northern states, which supported the federal government's decision to suspend the reopening of schools for SS3 students due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The federal government also said last week that applicants will not participate in WASCE for security reasons.

But at a virtual meeting of the West Nigeria Development Program Commission (DAWN) on Tuesday, commissioners, special education counselors and SUBEB presidents reached an agreement to reopen schools so that SS3 students can pass their final exams.

The meeting also agreed on the need for the Southwestern States to implement a 2016 plan to establish a regional review body similar to the IJMB in the North.

The plan was presented to the roundtable on creating a collaborative framework for the development and advancement of education in western Nigeria in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State in 2016.

A statement from the DAWN Commission said that all states will reopen schools for SS3 students by August 3 with COVID-19 preventive measures in place.

According to the press release, the states will contact the federal government at first instance to request that the WASCE be postponed for at least three weeks from the proposed resumption date.

In the second case, states should contact the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) directly to request that the exam be postponed until August 24.

Upon resumption, all schools must appoint incident managers and class directors, according to the document.

The state will also encourage intensive advocacy with stakeholders, including parents, teachers, caregivers, school owners and students, about what is expected of them when schools resume.

There will also be the designation of a quality assurance department for each state to issue a safety compliance certificate to each school before reopening.

Let's quickly remind us of Corona Virus.

it is a disease that's ravaging the country and indeed the entire world. A virus that has been declared by all health authorities as a pandemic disease is a cause for concern. COVID-19 has grown from the virus to epidemic then to pandemic.

COVID-19 has a scary mortality rate, maybe not in all countries, but at least in substantial number of countries. The virus can be asymptomatic, thereby reducing the chances of survival when eventually discovered, the situation is worsen by the fact that anybody and indeed everybody can be a carrier, it is more worsen by the fact that a proven cure has not been found for it.

Let us try to Stay Safe.

Thanks for your time.
