The Oyo State Government has announced a slight adjustment to its school reopening schedule, contrary to the one earlier released.

This was made known by Mr Olaleye Olasunkanmi, the state Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, in a statement on Friday in Ibadan.

The statement noted that the adjustment was to allow students resume for lessons ahead of the commencement of the West African School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), for school candidates August 17.

”The JSS3 and Primary six classes were asked to proceed on holiday as earlier scheduled and resume for their examinations on August 10 and August 20 respectively,” he said.

Olasunkanmi enjoined all education stakeholders in the state to note the new development and other academic schedules approved by the State Executive Council on July 21, which remained as announced.
