Osun state reverts to old uniforms policy, warns schools against sales of uniforms

Written by MJ

The Osun State Government has instructed the management of primary and secondary schools in the state not to sell or distribute uniforms to students in their schools as the reversal to old uniforms is set to take effect starting from Monday, November 16 for the 2020/2021 academic session.

This development is coming after the state government had earlier announced, as part of the review of some education policies in the state, that every school should revert to its old-established and recognised public uniform with effect from the new academic session, as against the current single uniform regime in the state.

The Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode, revealed this after the State Executive Council meeting, held on Monday, November 9, 2020. She stressed that uniforms are to be purchased in the open market from textile dealers and produced by tailors in the state.

While encouraging parents and guardians to patronise traders and businesses within the state for the educational consumables of their children and wards, Mrs Egbemode maintained that the Council established this commerce-driven guideline to provide an avenue for businesses within the state to receive a boost during this period.

According to the Commissioner, “The Ministry of Education had earlier done a systematic stakeholders’ engagement with Parent’s Forum, Old Students’ Association and School Authorities, and these guidelines have been properly communicated.

Furthermore, to accommodate any form of logistical setbacks, the government has approved a two-week window for the full implementation of the reversal, which means that by Tuesday, December 1, 2020, the reversal should have been fully implemented.
