Adeniran said the management of Standard and Quality Assurance department had frowned at the poor compliance of teachers and pupils in some schools.

“Some of them were seen without face masks and flouting social distancing instructions. At some schools, the compliance level was not encouraging, while the team did not meet teachers in some schools.

“ Pupils did not comply with extant guidelines of social distancing and use of nose masks,” he said.

Adeniran however applauded the compliance level of some teachers and pupils with resumption guidelines.

“We want to ensure total commitment to safety in our schools. We cannot afford to endanger the lives of our pupils and staff members,” he said.

Adeniran urged headteachers of public primary schools to ensure full compliance with the guidelines.

“While some schools are serious with the guidelines, some were lackadaisical about the issue of COVID-19 and have been called to order,” he said.

Adeniran said that the monitoring would be extended to other parts of the state during the week.

Some of the school visited are, Methodist Primary School, Agbeni, Islamic Mission School, Yemetu and Ratibi Muslim School, Molete,

Others are St. Bredan’s Primary School, Kumapayi, Egbeda, Abadina Primary School, UI and, St. Thomas Primary School I, II & III, Agbowo.
