The Government of Imo State has given approval for the resumption of schools on Monday October 5, 2020.

The resumption is however subject to the adherence to the recommendations by the Committee responsible for ensuring that Covid-19 safety protocols headed by the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prof. Placid Njoku.

The decision to reopen the schools was reached at the State Executive Council Meeting which I presided over.

The Council gave approval for the Imo State School system to be fully automated and digitalized to capture pupils and students enrollment; teachers, pupils and students personal data; payment of school fees; examination details and other relevant information concerning schools in Imo.

The reason for automation is to make it easy for government, parents, teachers, students, pupils and the general public to access information on schools as well as data of anyone who passed through such schools. The Commissioner for Education will head the automation process.

Regrettably, the State Executive Council had received information that the planned warning strike by doctors in Imo State is not only politically motivated, but an intention to blackmail the government. The government has been making frantic efforts to sanitize the wrongs and rots in the payroll system where past administrations, civil and public servants have been found to be complicit.

We therefore enjoined the public not to be perturbed by the planned doctors warning strike and we urge the doctors in the State, especially their leaders, to reconsider their stand on the planned warning strike and think of amicable resolution through dialogue with the appropriate government officials.

-Hope Uzodimma
