The federal government has been urged to expedite actions on the total reopening of schools across the country.
The Vice Chancellor Kwara state University Mallete Prof. Muhammed Mustapha Akanbi,(SAN) stated this in Ilorin on Thursday.
He said “the earlier students go back to school, the better as the public should learn to live with the covid-19 by complying to safety protocol.”
According to him, “Government has taken a bold and good step by allowing some particularly sets of students to resume. Some have been supporting online teaching and exams, but we can never compare physical learning with online.
“The pandemic has posed a challenge to us, it is affecting private universities, some of them are sacking workers presently. We are currently at home because of the covid-19 and government directive. If you asked me now I will tell you that the universities should be reopen immediately.”
While speaking on Kwara state University preparedness towards resumption, he said “we are already fumigating our facilities, both in Malete and Ilorin. We have been doing online lectures for classes with large number of students.
“For those with seizable numbers we have made plans to maintain physical distancing of two feets as recommended and also divide some into other lecture classes.”
