We’re In No Hurry To Reopen Schools- Ogun Govt

By Augustine Akhilomen

Ogun State Government has disclosed that they are not in a hurry to reopen tertiary institutions, secondary and primary schools amid the covid-19 pandemic.

The government said it would avoid taking an uninformed decision to reopen schools because Lagos State had made the announcement to reopen schools.

The Special Adviser to the governor on Public Communications, Remmy Hazzan, in an interview with The Punch, said the state government shut the schools based on the Federal Government’s order and would reverse the order based on the same method.

He said “We will look at the various database and use empirical data available.

“The indicator that will determine when we are going to open depends majorly on the Federal Government`s readiness to reverse the order so that we will not be seen as a state that is anti-Federal Government.

“That is on one side. The second one is that even at that we will still rely on empirical data that science provides to guarantee the safety of our children when they return to school. So the fact that Lagos has done it is not an indicator that we have to be in a hurry to do it.”
