The Kwara State Government has directed students, parents/guardians and teachers of the ten schools closed following Hijab controversy in the state to resume on Monday, April 12, 2021 for the third term session.
This is contained in a statement by Mrs Mary Kemi Adeosun, the
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education in Ilorin.
According to her, this is part of the government’s efforts to bring the students in these schools up to speed in whatever they may have missed when their schools were shut.
This is especially necessary for students preparing for external examinations.
The resumption date for other schools not affected by the brief closure of schools is Monday 26th, 2021, as had earlier been communicated.
All the teachers and staff of the affected schools should resume duty and commence classes immediately.
The Monitoring and Inspection team of the Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development will be going round to ascertain compliance.
