The Ogun State Government on Thursday announced the indefinite
postponement of the resumption date for all primary and
secondary schools in the state. The postponement is part of measures to curb the spread of the Ebola disease.
The Commissioner for Education,Science and Technology, Segun
Odubela, made this known in a press statement.
He attributed the postponement to the deadly Ebola disease.
“Due to the current global health challenge occasioned by the
deadly Ebola disease, the Ogun State Ministry of Education,
Science and Technology has postponed the resumption date for all
public and private primary and secondary schools earlier
scheduled for September 15, 2014 to a date to be announced
later,” he said.
The Commissioner said the measure became necessary in line
with the Federal Ministry of Education’s directive that schools in
the country should put resumption for 2014/2015 on hold in order
to curb the spread of the deadly disease.
Mr. Odubela therefore enjoined parents and guardians to take
proper care of their children and wards by monitoring their
movement and engaging them in academic activities.
