“A certificate of Readiness showing that a school has adhered to all the conditions required for school reopening will be issued to all schools before they can reopen.” he said

The Governor also disclosed that they have embarked on a quick rejuvenation of schools to ensure that basic facilities such as water, sanitiser, soap and other facilities to aid hygienic practices are in place.

He further announced that the two largest markets in Ado Ekiti – Oja Oba and Bisi Market, will now be open to lock-up shops only, subject to compliance with protocols. Fayemi affirmed that street trading, makeshift stalls kiosks and open display of wares in the said markets are still banned.


  1. The safety of the students and the teachers are Paramount because the government should not endanger anyone of them with this COVI-19. Government should firstly put everything in place before opening the school.

  2. Governance is not easy especially in a Presidential system like ours where the chief executive of the state bear the praise and blame alone. Reopening of school is good yes but one should trade with caution because if the virus infection increases, the governor will be held accountable
