Students in the Southeast states of Nigeria are suffering because of the numerous sit-at-home orders which have been mandated on innocent residents of southeastern states. Millions of students in these southeast states have been falling behind other students from other states because, in other states located in other regions of the country, sit-at-home is not an issue. For many months, students in the southeast have not been going to school on Mondays because of the sit-at-home order from members of IPOB.

Governments from different levels have been working hard to get things to return to normalcy, however, students from some southeast states are losing a lot of things that they should have been learning at their various schools on Mondays. As a result of the sit-at-home order, it is advisable for these schools that are located in the southeast to consider following the footsteps of the Anambra state government and make Saturdays to become a school day, so that Nigerian students from the Southeastern region of the country can make up for not coming to school on Mondays.

As Government at all levels continues to work towards resolving the issue of sit-at-home which has been affecting education and economic activities in the Southeast region, students from these regions should start schooling on Saturdays so that what they lose on Mondays can be gained on Saturdays.

Starting schooling on Saturday may not be the perfect solution to the sit-at-home order but it is a good solution towards solving the problem that is associated with students missing going to school every Monday morning. If students continue to stay at home every Monday and miss out on vital educational programs they should have learned, it will be difficult for schools to cover the syllabus on time. However, if Saturday becomes the new school day in these southeastern states, what should have been learned on Mondays will be shifted to Saturdays and students will continue studying without any stumbling block.
