Government of Nigeria’s state of Osun has postponed the resumption of public schools by two weeks.
Mr. Lawrence Oyeniran, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, made this known via a statement on Thursday in Osogbo.
“Consequent upon certain considerations, the governor has approved the postponement of the resumption date of schools,’’ he said.
Schools in Osun were earlier scheduled to resume on Monday, 16 September.
Oyeniran said that the new resumption date of the schools was now Wednesday, 2 October.
He enjoined principals, head teachers, parents, guardians, students and pupils to note the change in the date of the schools’ resumption.
Oyeniran, however, advised the pupils and students to make judicious use of the two-week extension of their holidays.
“Necessary efforts are being made to ensure immediate commencement of teaching and learning when the schools resume,’’ he added.
