Reopen schools in Ogun State, NANS tells State Governor

NANS tells Governor to re open Schools in Ogun State. Reasons are not tenable as the continued school closure puts the academic life and, by extension, the future of Nigerian students at peril.

 

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) South-West zone, has urged the Ogun State governor Prince Dapo Abiodun, to consider the reopening schools. According to the deputy coordinator of NANS, South-West zone, Uthman Oladimeji, despite that the government has disclosed the reason why it does not want to join its counterparts in Osun and Lagos to reopen schools now, such reasons are not tenable as the continued school closure puts the academic life and, by extension, the future of Nigerian students at peril.

Earlier, the special adviser to the governor on public communications, Remmy Hazzan, was quoted to have said that the state would use empirical data available before reopening schools.

Ogun State is a front liner in matters of education and that the same passion should motivate the government towards doing everything humanly possible to make the academic sector fully functional again. However, this is being maintained by NANS leader.

He noted the government should begin to develop practicable mechanisms, guidelines and policies that will make school reopening possibly across the board because the steady decrease in the COVID-19 infection cases is a clear indication that Nigerians are beginning to adjust their lifestyles.
