Amid criticisms by the Federal Government and the opposition APC, the Oyo State Government has altered its initial plans to re-open schools on June 29.
Stakeholders within and outside the State had complained about the plan to reopen schools even as Coronavirus cases are on the rise countrywide.
The Makinde administration now seems to have yielded grounds from its earlier position by scaling down its plan.
According to the revised plan, only teachers are to resume on June 29 while students in terminal classes will resume a week later.
The initial plan was for all terminal classes including Primary Six (Pry 6), Junior Secondary School Three (JSS3) and Senior Secondary School Three (SSS3) to resume on June 29 ahead of preparations for their various exams.
The slight modification of the resumption plan was said to have been caused by the fact that most schools have yet to implement the mandatory NCDC and Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 protocols on school reopening.
