“Every child has a dream. Every child wants to grow up and become a professional and build a rewarding career. But when they cannot go to school because of this Covid-19, they are naturally worried about the future. However, in Anambra State, we have been working hard to bridge that gap with our Teaching-on-Air programme which the State Ministry of Basic Education runs in collaboration with the Anambra Broadcasting Service. We have also encouraged quite a number of schools to migrate their classes to online platforms. These efforts will definitely arrest the slide caused by the closure of schools in response to Covid-19,” Governor Obiano explained.

The governor further assured that Anambra would reopen schools once there was a clear indication that the coast was clear and that the school children would not be in harm’s way when they returned to schools.

He commended the teachers who had since returned to schools following a government directive and have been undergoing appropriate Covid-19 training that would help them manage the students through the threat of COVID-19 when schools finally reopen.
