COVID-19: Physically-challenged supports Oyo’s `learning-on-air’ programme

Olajide Jonathan

The Oyo State government, on Sunday, said it had received support for the state radio educational programme from a physically-challenged man, Olajide Jonathan, to boost students’ participation.
Dr Nureni Adeniran, the Executive Chairman, State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), said this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Ibadan.
Adeniran said during the weekend, Jonathan, who, he described as ‘a man with a special need’, supported the ongoing government’s ‘learning-on-air’ broadcast for primary school pupils with some customised bags.
He said the gesture was to encourage pupils in the state to pay rapt attention to the radio broadcast put together by the board.
Adeniran quoted the donor, a resident of Ifo in Ogun, as commending the state government for taking learning to the doorsteps of the pupils in the state.
He, however, urged the government to take into cognisance pupils with special needs during this stay-at-home period.
Jonathan, who expressed his desire to meet the SUBEB chairman soon, said that his support for the basic education sector was borne out of pure love for the Gov. Seyi Makinde-led administration.
Receiving the gifts, Adeniran said that they were testimonies to the wide reach of the broadcast, adding that they would go a long way in encouraging basic school pupils in the state.
He noted that though the board initiated the idea of gifts about two weeks ago, with cash prizes for the winners, complementing such with beautifully-customised bags would be an added advantage for the winners.
Adeniran said: “As far as we are concerned, this is an immense contribution, coming from Mr Olajide Jonathan.
“We didn’t expect that someone who neither resides in the state nor comes from the state would pick this kind of keen interest in our on-air programme for pupils during this stay-at-home period.”
The SUBEB chairman also commended the sacrifice and efforts of Jonathan, who, he said, decided to leave other commitments to give to the state and its pupils such valuable gifts.
Adeniran, however, urged the pupils and their parents to abide by precautionary safety as prescribed by the State COVID-19 Task Force and the health professionals so that the spread of coronavirus could be halted.
