Ogun teachers give conditions for school reopening



CHAIRMAN of Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) in the state,  Titilope Adebanjo, who gave the conditions while speaking with newsmen at the union’s secretariat in Abeokuta, insisted that the conditions must be met by the government before schools could reopen in the state.

  He equally listed disinfection of school premises, provision of running water, alcohol based sanitisers, training of teachers on how to use the thermometers and standby health personnel within a one kilometer radius of schools as other conditions.

  The NUT chairman explained that the conditions were contained in a position paper already presented to the government on how best to ensure safe reopening of schools without jeopardising the health of the students and dispelled the rumour making the round that public school teachers were not ready to resume work, insisting that teachers were tired of staying at home and ready for school reopening.

  He urged parents to provide face masks for their children before sending them to school, warning that no student would be allowed into school without using a face mask, even as he expressed the optimism that schools would be reopened in the state before the next two week if the conditions were met.
