According to reports reaching Oyogist.com, Governor Willie Obiano has approved Saturday classes for students owing to the effect of the sit-at-home order of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on learning.
Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment Mr C. Don Adinuba, confirmed this on Sunday.
He said the arrangement is for students to replace Saturday with Monday where movement is usually disrupted.
According to him, the state government is passionate about the learning of the children and does not want them to lag behind.
Consequent upon the governor’s directive, principals and parents have been notified of the new development in the state.
According to a letter from the ministry of education,
“All headmasters are to notify teachers, pupils as well as parents about the new development. Quality Assurance supervision and every other supervision henceforth will hold on Saturdays.
Every permission for absence from classes on Saturdays must be addressed to the Executive Chairman ASUBBEB through the E S following due process. Saturday classes will commence on 30/10/21 ie next week.”
