Ajimobi summons 15 school heads over improper dressing of pupils.

7:58 PM

Oyo State Governor Isiaq Abiola Ajimobi has summoned heads of 15 schools which participated in Children’s Day march pass over improper dressing of their pupils. Shortly after taking salute at the Children’s Day parade, which featured primary and secondary schools at the Lekan Salami Sports Complex, Adamasingba, Ibadan, the governor indicted the headship of the schools for the appearance of their pupils which he said was below standard.

Governor Ajimobi said that he took particular notice of the affected schools, comprising 11 nursery/primary schools and four secondary schools, while they marched past him, saying that the dressing of the pupils was unacceptable.

He observed that while some of the children put on torn clothes, others appeared dirty and unkempt, and their shoes did not match their uniforms.

While ordering the headteachers and principals of the affected schools to report to his office, the governor also directed officials of the state Ministry of Education to visit the schools to ascertain their environmental condition.

He said that any of the schools that failed to meet the required environmental condition would be shut down.
“The dirty appearances of these pupils are a reflection of the low quality of supervision of the head-teachers and the principals of their schools. I won’t tolerate that because in Oyo State today, quality is the game,’’ he said.

Governor Ajimobi described the theme of this year’s celebration “Our Children, Our Future: Our Collective Responsibility’’ as reflecting government’s efforts at raising the consciousness of parents, families and the society at large on the critical need to promote the rights of children to development and meaningful existence.

The governor said it was, however, disheartening to note that as a result of the nation’s current security challenges and the prevalence of HIV/AIDS, a good number of children had lost their lives while others were traumatized, orphaned and vulnerable due to loss of one or both parents.
“Some are even subjected to sexual exploitation and various forms of child molestation which are detrimental to national peaceful co-existence,’’ he noted.

Governor Ajimobi, therefore, charged schools, parents, guardians and care-givers to imbibe the culture of “teach a child what he or she should do’’ in order to facilitate the development of the state and carve a better image for the citizens.
