Most Parents and Teachers in Oyo State are in a dilemma over the decision of the State Government to open schools on the 29th of June (for teachers) and the 6th of July, (for students) 2020.
This is coming amidst the ever increasing cases of covid-19 in the country, which stands at 23,298 confirmed cases (as at June 26,2020).

The Minister of State for Education, Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba has described the decision by the Oyo State Government to reopen schools as insensitive. Several others have also branded the plan by the Oyo State Government as “suicidal”.

The Oyo State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Olasunkanmi Olaleye, said the state government would go ahead with the plan and that the government is ready to intervene in any school and salvage the situation should a teacher or pupil become symptomatic.
