“On behalf of His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde, I wish to appreciate all stakeholders in the education sector for your unalloyed support and hard work during the preparation for the resumption of academic activities in our schools.

“Your dedication to work, love for our students and personal involvement in the training and observance of COVID-19 protocols in the bid to contain Coronavirus infection among our school children is unparalleled.
