The Kwara State Government has approved the re-opening of the state-owned tertiary institutions and private institutions.
The development was confirmed in a statement released today Wednesday 30th October 2020 by the Kwara State Commissioner for communication, Harriet Afolabi-Oshatimehin.
Oshatimehin revealed that Public and private schools in Kwara State are to resume normal academic classes from Monday October 5.
The Commissioner added: “Similarly, state-owned tertiary institutions are to reopen from October 12 or as may be determined by their respective governance structures.
“COVID-19 is still with us. The government therefore urges school authorities to ensure that all safety protocols are adhered to, including physical distance, use of face masks, and constant washing of hands with soap and water, in order to flatten the curve of transmission of the virus.
“The government similarly wishes our students and teacher a safe stay in school while promising to continue to do its best to keep the citizens safe at all times. Schools with scanty regards for safety protocols risk being shut.”
