The Director of Protocol, Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti, Prince Adeyemi Adejolu has said that the institution is still awaiting directives and guidelines from the appropriate regulatory agencies in the Federal system for resumption.
Adejolu who made this known while speaking with Ekiti Standard Journalist in his office in Ado- Ekiti, explained that they have received advice from the regulatory body to get prepared, adding that the institution is set, while still expecting other steps to be taken by them before the resumption is formally announced.
It would be recalled that following the global spread of corona virus pandemic which led to the total closure of schools in Nigeria in March this year as advised by the Federal Government, Ekiti State government has given a green light during a statewide broadcast when he said that institutions of learning are free to open on the 2nd October, 2020.
“The students are already agitated, they are prepared to come into the institution. I even understand that some of them have been coming around to find out”.
“About two weeks ago, scammer went on social media, trying to suggest that they’re being summoned, we have to denounce it. That’s not to say that we are not doing everything necessary to ensure that we bring them back to continue with the 2019/2020 academic session”. Noting that with the look of things, it’s going to be very soon,
He stressed that measures ought to be put in place to ensure that the COVID-19 protocols are observed when the students come into residence, which would start right from the gate, emphasizing that they would have to go through certain necessary guidelines from the school gate to the hostels, to the classrooms and to the departmental offices.
“Even in the appearance, of course, it’s a law for all of us to put on our facemask, they are expected to do that. We are going to adopt all the directives given by the NCDC and the guidelines given in Ekiti State as measures to contain the spread of the dreaded pandemic”.
Prince Adejolu said they would have to continue from where they stopped aside from whatever other engagements that must have happened during the COVID-19 break.
