The Ogun State Government on Thursday announced the indefinite postponement of the resumption date for all primary and secondary schools in the state.
The Commissioner for Education,Science and Technology, Segun Odubela, made this known in a press statement, 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.
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.
