Sit at home: Anambra Approves Saturday as School Day

Though IPOB has suspended the Monday sit-at-home, the order continues to be enforced in the Southeastern part of Nigeria. 

According to a Memo released by the government, Saturday classes will commence on October 30, 2021.

Titled, ‘Anambra State Government Approves Saturday as School Day,' "I am directed by the Executive Secretary to inform you that the Anambra State Govt. has approved Saturdays as school days in place of Mondays. 

"All HMs are to notify teachers, pupils as well as parents about the new development. Quality Assurance supervision and every other supervisions henceforth will hold on Saturdays. 

"Every game permission for absent from classes on Saturdays must be addressed to the Executive Chairman ASUBBEB through the Executive Secretary following due process. Saturday classes will commence on 30/10/21 ie next week."

Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Don Adinuba, clarified on Sunday, October 25, that “the measure is to enable our pupils to learn as much as possible in a safe environment."

Enugu and some other South-East states which could not immediately confirm, are said to have similarly switched the school day from Monday to Saturday.
