THE Vice Chancellor of Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State, Prof. Joshua Ogunwole, has urged government at different levels to prepare for the aftermath of coronavirus as he opined that life would not remain the same afterward. While alerting the government of the effect of the pandemic on the economy, he charged the people to braze up for the challenges post COVID-19 will pose for the society, especially in the area of human relation. He disclosed this while donating relief materials to the people of Iwo and Oluponna to cushion the effect of lockdown on the vulnerable residents of the towns, adding that the world would not remain the same as global economy would rely more on virtual interaction, hence, the masses must be prepared for the new reality.

According to him, “the country must start brooding on the aftermath effect of coronavirus on the general wellbeing of the people,” stressing that the school’s gesture was to support government’s efforts in alleviating the sufferings of people at home as a result of the lockdown directive.

Ogunwole said: “We need to start thinking of what to do after COVID-19, no doubt, coronavirus has affected many, this is an indication that the county cannot remain the same, the entire world will depend more on virtual interaction and a new method of doing business and meetings will evolve.” He cited religious organisations who now conduct their services through the digital system unlike before and pleaded with the government at all levels to avoid community transmission of the pandemic virus. “As a Christian University, we are our brothers’ keepers this is why we are out to give this welfare package to the people not minding their religious inclination. We have invited the leaders of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and the leaders of the Islamic society of Nigeria, the representatives of the development unions of the towns, and other classified groups for the welfare package which is meant for the vulnerable under their umbrellas”. While also responding to questions on whether the school would be affected with the holiday, he said the institution is technology-driven and has been teaching their students through e-learning facilities.” “We are not in any way affected, before the advent of the pandemic virus, Bowen University has been a technological based institution, we have been teaching our students with our smart school hub, video teaching, animation especially with our colleagues in Australia, Italy and others”.

Kaduna state Senior Secondary School (SSS3) students are expected to resume next Monday August 10, 2020 in preparation for their West African Examination Council (WAEC) examination scheduled to start August 17.

A statement signed by the Kaduna state Commissioner for Education, Dr Shehu Usman Mohammed, Monday said the one week interval between the date of announcement and the date of resumption was to enable all the affected public and private schools prepare their Covid-19 protocol to ensure the safety of students and staff from the pandemic.

“Kaduna state government has approved Monday, 10th  August, 2020, as the resumption date for the Senior Secondary School (SSS)3 students that are expected to begin their West African Senior School Certificate Examination slated for 17th August,  2020.

“In compliance with the announcement of the Federal Ministry of Education, which advised students to resume from August 4, 2020, Kaduna state Ministry of Education is directing all principals to make arrangements to receive  SS3 boarding students on 9th and day students on August 10, 2020.

“All administrators of public and private schools are to note that the one-week period starting from today, is meant to allow them to  prepare adequately and to put COVID-19 guidelines in place.

“No school, whether public or private, is allowed to open before the 10th of August, 2020. Principals are to ensure compliance to agreed guidelines, which include reduced hours of work/revision to 4 hours per shift, strict social distancing both in the classes, laboratories, libraries and hostels, consistency of temperature monitoring and handling any suspected case of COVID 19 to the health authorities.


“Private secondary schools are expected to report their readiness to the Kaduna State Schools’ Quality Assurance Authority, using an appropriate checklist and obtaining  a written ‘’no objection to open’’ on clean bill of  health.

“On the other hand, heads of higher institutions, principals of public schools are to report to the relevant department in the Ministry of Education. Furthermore, parents are advised to ensure proper arrangements for safe transportation of their children to and from schools.”

Dr Shehu Mohammed further stated that, the state government was doing everything possible to decontaminate and disinfect public schools, including higher institutions, provide hand washing facilities, arrange for temperature monitoring of both staff and students, provide facemasks for staff and students in public institutions, as well as provide hand sanitizers.

“Parents are advised to equip their children with extra facemasks and 100ml hand sanitizers for use during their trip to and from schools. Appropriate resumption dates for other examinations and for the rest of the classes, including the SS1, SS2 and JSS 1-3, as well as primary schools will be announced in due course.

“The Ministry is encouraging schools to continue the e-learning education programme using the google classrooms, radio and television stations and other online applications until full normalcy is returned to the academic environment. 

“The Ministry is using this opportunity to commend all partners in the education sector, Non-Governmental Organizations, Parents Teachers Associations, proprietors of private schools, old students associations and the press for their continued support and understanding.”
