However, with the insufficient number of health officials to, covering the state as schools resume poses a lot of challenge, Owojuyigbe said that schools must engage competent health officials to work closely with state officials.

“Our health officials are working in communities and have enormous work on their hands. But l can assure you that they will be monitoring, sensitising and giving schools information, communication and educational materials for learners and teachers to know what is expected of them as we work together to curtail the pandemic.”

She urged school owners and managements to adhere to WHO protocols and state guidelines in the interest of learners.

The National President, Association for Formidable Educational Development (AFED), Orji Kalu Emmanuel, praised the state government’s response to the pandemic, saying it had been impactful.

We have constructed automatic hand washing buckets as an association which was built by one of our teachers. We have also made arrangement with banks to procure and distribute it in  large numbers to our members.

“We have made our 500,000 face masks. We got support from Holland,” he said.

Emmanuel said AFED schools plan to run six-day weeks because of the large number of students in schools. He said some students will come from Mondays to Wednesday, others from Thursday to Saturday so we can use all classes.
