Gov. Makinde cancels midterm break in Oyo schools

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has announced the cancellation of Thursday and Friday mid-term break for public primary and secondary schools in the state.

The Governor made the decision based on the fact that students of public schools in the state had stayed out of their classrooms for several days as a result of recent industrial actions and public holidays, Daily Post reports.

This announcement was contained in a circular with reference number, Edu1070/Col.VI/27, dated June 11, 2018, signed by the acting permanent secretary, state Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mr Idowu Adeosun.

Adeosun pointed out that the directive did not affect private schools in the state.

Teachers and heads of schools were consequently to utilize the two days to make up for lost grounds in their lesson plan for the third term of the ongoing 2018/2019 session.

“I am to inform you that in view of the number of days the students of public primary and secondary schools have stayed out of classrooms for the reasons of public holidays and strike actions, the mid-term break for the third term of 2018/2019 academic session is hereby cancelled,” the circular read in part.

The state chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) recently suspended a two-week old strike while the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) had also suspended a 24-hour long strike on May 27, 2019.
