Kwara speaks on reopening of tertiary institutions

Abdurrahman Abdurrazaq, Kwara State governor

Kwara State Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Science and Technology, Sa’adatu Modibbo Kawu has debunked the rumour making rounds on some social media platforms that a date has been announced for resumption of academic activities in tertiary institutions in the state.

The rumour on the platforms stated that 28th September, 2020 has been scheduled as date of the resumption of academic activities by the tertiary institutions.

Dispelling the rumour while fielding questions from some journalists in her office, Hajiya Kawu said the statement is lacking in truth and should be disregarded by the students and the public.

She further said no resumption can take place in the state unless the state government has an iron-clad assurance that safety measures are in place across the institutions in the state.

Also, as part of preparation for resumption of academic activities in the tertiary institutions, Hajiya Kawu disclosed that Pre-Reopening consultations with stakeholders would begin on Monday, 21st September, 2020.

She, however, called for patience among the students as she assured them that the government place premium on their safety and would not do anything to compromise their wellbeing.
