The Scribe also advised the Acting Education Secretaries and headteachers to let the school community know that the school belongs to them and relate well with the Divisional Police Office and Department of State Security in their zones, so that adequate security would be provided in all the schools.

In his response at the meeting, Mr. Sanusi Dauda Abolade, Chairman AOPSHON Abeokuta South, who spoke on behalf of other Chairmen, apologize for the absence of state Chairman due to other State official duty, he appreciated the State Government and Ogun SUBEB for working tirelessly towards ensuring a safe school for the Learners and Teachers. He implored the Executive Chairman to look into some of the highlighted challenges such as resuscitation of rural allowance for the teacher in the rural areas, resumption of the school food vendors to take care of primary four to six pupils who were excluded from the Home Grown Feeding Programme among other issues.

In her vote of thanks, Director, Education Quality Assurance, Mrs. Kehinde Anifowose informed the gathering that, total compliance to covid-19 protocols should continue to be maintained in all the schools and that State Government efforts in flatten the curve of the deadly virus should be supported by all and sundry.
