JUST IN: Anambra Shifts Schools To Saturdays Over Sit-At-Home

The sit-at-home ordered by the indigenous people of biafra (IPOB) has forced Anambra State Government to replace Monday with Saturday’s lessons for the students.

Private and public schools are to resume Saturday’s lessons in place of Monday’s, which starts from 8am to 1pm this week.

According to the reports, most of the private school resume since last week to make up for the lost weeks.

A circular by the State Government over the weekend directed that classes should hold on Saturdays for the students.

“I am directed by the E S to inform you that the Anambra State Govt. has approved Saturdays as school days in place of Mondays.

“All HMs are to notify teachers, pupils as well as parents about the new development. Quality Assurance supervision and every other supervisions henceforth will hold on Saturdays.

“Every permission for absent 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.” the circular read.

When contacted, chairman of Anambra State Universal Basic Education Board (ASUBEB) Chief Patrick Ugboaja, confirmed the development to nation.

He said the government met with all the stakeholders in the State on the way forward for education last Friday where the decision was taken.

 “It’s not a rumour, it’s real. The decision was for the betterment of the children and education in general.

“Saturday schools will resume in the State because of the situation we’ve found ourselves.” Ugboaga said.
