“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.
