Ogun State Government has urged community and village leaders in remote areas of the State, where children were faced with the challenge of accessing the Ogun DigiClass, to assist in creating enabling environment for the children to key into its digital classes.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Public Communications, Hon. Remmy Hazzan made this known while fielding questions from newsmen in Abeokuta, the State capital, saying, “though there will be some hitches and effects caused by the closing down of schools, it is still better than for us to lose our children to the deadly pandemic”.
Responding to calls from some quarters on government to reopen schools and restart academic activities, Hazzan reminded parents that only students who were alive and healthy would be privileged to learn.
He noted that the State Government would not be caught unawares whenever the Federal Government calls for schools reopening, assuring of the State’s plans to provide students with face masks, hand sanitizers, as well as enforce other safety protocols.
Hon. Hazzan who advised teachers to use the lockdown period to upgrade themselves, added that government and religious leaders were always in constant talks for reviews on safety guidelines towards reopening of religious centres.
