Ekiti State Government has on Saturday declared an extension of the current long-term holidays for primary and secondary students in public and private schools.
This was made known through a statement by the state Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, Jide Egunjobi in Ado Ekiti.
The commissioner said all schools would now resume on Sept. 24, contrary to the acceptable Sept. 14 earlier resumption date.
According to the commissioner, the extension of the holidays has become necessary to allow the various schools conduct interviews for fresh students across the state.
Besides, he said the extension would also allow for consolidation of the school system before resumption of pupils and students.
In the same vein, all parents, guardians and other stakeholders in the education sector are urged to take note of the extension and disseminate the information appropriately.
The commissioner implored teachers and workers in various schools to brace up for better service delivery as they awaited the new resumption day.
