The holiday was also extended based on the directive of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) Headquarters to ensure that all necessary protective equipment are supplied to the school.
Channels Television correspondent reports that while only few schools were seen using the infrared thermometer to check the status of the pupils, others did not have the thermometer as students were seen going in freely without any check.
Although no wash-hand basin was sighted in any of the schools visited, the principal of one of the secondary schools, who spoke to us off camera, confirmed that the State Government had provided the required protective materials but they would be brought out for appropriate use.
In the meantime, efforts to reach the State Chairman of the Nigerian Union of Teachers, NUT, Saka Adesiyan, was not fruitful as he was said to be out of town.
The students have, however, settled down for serious work in most of the schools to make up for lost weeks.
