The Osun State Government has said a private school proprietor in the state had been handed to over to the police for circulating unapproved plan for school reopening .
The school reopening proposal was shared in many whatsapp groups in the state on Wednesday and when attention of Special Adviser to the governor on Education , Mr Jamiu Olawumi was drawn to the proposal , he told our correspondent to disregard it.
Olawumi , who claimed that the man circulating the said proposal had been arrested by the police on the order of state government , told residents to wait for the directive of Governor Gboyega Oyetola on the issue .
According to the said reopening proposal , schools in Osun state were to resume on July 20 , 2020 and only 20 children were to sit in a class
It was also proposed that big schools would run two shifts of morning , 8 am to 12 pm ; and afternoon , 1 .30 pm to 5 .30 pm daily .
But Olawumi said , “Schools were closed by the President and the power to reopen has been conceded to the state governors . Osun citizens should await the announcement as endorsed by the governor very soon . We have handed him ( the person behind the proposal ) over to the police . Disregard the proposal please .”
Efforts to get reaction of Osun State leadership of National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools to the development proved futile .
