Oyo State Government has urged Heads of Public schools across the state to commence academic activities immediately, saying idleness of teachers or pupils will not be tolerated.
Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Adeniran made the call while monitoring resumption of schools in Ibadan.
Dr. Adeniran, who monitored the resumption alongside other members of the board expressed satisfaction with the situation they met at some schools visited.
The chairman however called on other schools, who are yet to commence academic activities, to do so with the pupils immediately.
“We are going around to ensure quality in our education sector and ensure that infrastructural facilities are provided. This has afforded us the opportunity to identify schools in need of renovation and facilities.”
“We want school work to start immediately. We have gone to some schools and we noticed that a good number of them have already commenced”, he said.
Dr. Adeniran maintained that early commencement of academic activities would enable schools in the State to cover the syllabus.
