There was low turnout of students as public schools in Oyo state resumed for the 2021/2022 second term academic activities on Monday.

The Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran decried the low turnout of students during an inspection of resumption in Primary schools in Ibadan metropolis on Monday.

Dr. Adeniran who visited some schools in Ido, Ibadan North, Ibadan South-West, Ibadan North-West Local Government Areas of Ibadan, alongside a team from the Board, observed that while some public schools in the axis had teachers on the ground, many pupils were yet to resume.

“There are some schools where we didn’t meet a substantial number of students in classes. We are using this opportunity to appeal to parents to release their children and wards to resume for normal activities, which has commenced”.

He said Oyo State Government’s policy is that Head teachers and teachers must hold pre-resumption meetings before commencement of academic activities.

Dr. Adeniran therefore frowned at some schools holding such meetings during school hours, at the detriment of the pupils in classrooms.

The OYOSUBEB Boss therefore sternly warned school head teachers to desist from such acts, urging them to monitor the activities of teachers and pupils in their various schools.

The Chairman, further urged Heads of Public schools to commence academic activities immediately, and ensure all covid-19 prevention protocols are adhered to in schools.

Dr. Adeniran opined that early commencement of academic activities would enable schools in the State to cover the syllabus, adding that it would help with quality and standard learning outcome.

“Henceforth, teachers should enforce compliance to all COVID-19 protocols. They should use nose-masks and provide water and soap”, he said.
