As schools reopen on Monday 16th September 2019 for a new academic session in Oyo State, the State government has charged all teachers to start academic works immediately.

The directive came from the State Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, Prof. Kehinde Sangodoyin in a statement issued over the weekend.

Sangodoyin asked that teachers, support staff and students were expected to be in schools before
eight for academic work to commence immediately.

The Commissioner disclosed further that quality education that would yield best academic performance was the target of the Seyi Makinde administration, urging teachers to work hard by preparing the students for an excellent performance.

“We are using this medium to congratulate our students in public and private schools for their resumption on Monday, 16th September 2019 and call on the teachers to engage the students in
academic exercises immediately.

“The current administration is doing all possible best to change the tide for better in achieving the best for the State in the area of students’ academic performance and improvement in the national rating of
the State in external examinations.

“To this end, facilities and teacher’s remunerations would be at the forefront of government reckoning to achieve the lofty goal, while teachers are expected to do their bit to justify government’s strict adherence to providing the best enabling environment for their performance.”

The foremost academic administrator also warned teachers to desist from collecting any money from any parents or students in the guise of collection of levies.

Prof. Sangodoyin appealed to parents to be alive to their responsibilities to make the children become valuable assets to both the parents and society in future.

He reiterated that the present administration was working assiduously to bring back the glory of education in the state, with a call to schools’ alumni and corporate bodies to support the current trend in the State to make education accessible to
all.
