Schools resume in Oyo state

16 September 2013, 12:05

Ibadan - Students of public and private schools in Ibadan on Monday resumed studies after a two-month vacation, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

A NAN correspondent who visited some of the schools reports that many of the students, however, trekked to their colleges due to traffic jam on some major roads while others were driven by their parents and guardians.

The gridlock was witnessed on some major roads in Ibadan metropolis due to movement of students  and civil servants to various parts of the metropolis.

The Principal of Oluyole High School, Adeoyo Ringroad, Rashhed Jimoh, while welcoming the students at a devotion,  urged them to be serious with their studies.

He advised the students to imbibe punctuality, neatness and seriousness in their daily affairs.

"You must be serious in your studies and you must know that you are not in the school for your parents but for yourself,’’ he said.

Also at Future Leaders Nursery Band Primary School, the proprietress, Bunmi Ajala, confirmed that the school had resumed, with normal academic activities.

"The school resumes today after about two months break and students and teachers are already present; we hope for the best,” she said.

At Ansarudeen Grammer School, Oke-Ado, Iyabo Aduloju, a teacher, told NAN that the school would begin lecture after the general cleaning of the classrooms and surroundings.

Some of the students who spoke to NAN, expressed happiness at their return to school.
