The government of Ogun state reopened schools five months after they closed to prevent the spread of coronavirus through the community.
The state government said the schools should reopen on September 21 for the first term of the 2020/2021 session.
In a statement on Monday by Kunle Somorin, Chief Press Secretary of Governor Dapo Abiodun, it was announced that the reopening of schools would be extended to all classes in elementary and secondary schools, technical and vocational colleges, and tertiary education institutions.
According to Kunle Somorin, universities, technical colleges and teacher training colleges are due to resume on the same day, September 21.
