Governor Rotimi Akeredolu announced the development Wednesday evening through his Twitter handle.
In this initial announcement, only the schedule of programmes for secondary school students were released.
The governor said that of primary schools would be released later.
These programmes covering various school subjects would be broadcast by Ondo State Radiovision Corporation Television (OSRC TV) and Orange 94.5 FM.
He said the stations came up with the initiative in collaboration with the Ondo State Ministry of Education.
He wrote, “I am happy to announce that @osrctvondo @Orange945FM in partnership with the Min. of Education have announced their Education Programming schedule for our kids that are affected by #Covid19. A primary school schedule is also in the works.”
