The Enugu State Government, on Friday, flagged off comprehensive decontamination and fumigation of secondary schools in the state, ahead of the resumption of academic activities.

The exercise is being carried out by the State Fire Service, led by its Chief Fire Officer, Engr. Okwudiri Ohaa.

Recall Enugu State Government had on March 24, 2020, closed all educational institutions in the state, as part of proactive measures to contain the spread of the Coronavirus.

The state government directed all public officers/civil servants to work from home until further notice, except those on essential services.

Shortly after the flag-off, which took place at Queen’s School Enugu, the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Uche Eze, who monitored the exercise alongside the Chairman of Post Primary Schools Management Board, PPSMB, Barr. Nestor Ezeme, said that it was Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s directives that “all our schools, classrooms, dormitories and school premises should be decontaminated and fumigated in preparation for resumption”.

Prof. Eze said, “this is to ensure that when the students and teachers are back to schools, they will be safe to learn in conducive environment”.

The exercise is expected to take place in all the schools and will be completed on or before the evening of Monday, August 3, 2020.

Prof. Eze further said, “In fact, a few days ago, His Excellency himself moved round schools to inspect our state of readiness and this decontamination and fumigation exercise, which is very important, is going to be the last stage of our preparation.”

The State Chief Fire Officer, Engr. Ohaa in his words stated that the decontamination and fumigation exercise will be carried out simultaneously in about 297 secondary schools.

He said, “We are sure that on or before the evening of Monday, we will complete it”. Engr. Ohaa revealed that the state fire service offices at different local government areas have been mobilized to carry out the exercise, reassuring that the schools will be ready “for students and their teachers to be safe when they return”.

The Principal of Queen’s School Enugu, Mrs. Ada Nweke in appreciation of Gov. Ugwuanyi’s efforts towards enhancing the standard of education in the state said that the teachers will ever remain grateful to the governor for his commitment and good works in the education sector and beyond.
