Makinde Succumbs to Pressure, Postpones School Resumption

Prior to the reopening of schools for final year students, Governor Seyi Makinde has made a u-turn by postponing the resumption of schools in the state.

This is against the earlier directive given by the state government some weeks back, that all terminal classes including Primary Six (Pry 6), Junior Secondary School Three (JSS3) and Senior Secondary School Three (SSS3) should resume on June 29, ahead of preparations for their various exams.

According to a top source within the Makinde-led administration, the change in plans became imperative in view of a latest expert report which indicated the non-readiness of schools in terms of meeting the various government protocols.

According to the new arrangement, only teachers are to resume on June 29th while students in terminal classes resume a week later.
