Ebola: Kaduna orders screening of students on resumption
Kaduna State government has directed all primary and secondary schools in the state to screen their students before allowing them into school premises when they resume on October 13.
The state Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Ibrahim Ali, gave the directive Friday while addressing heads of private and public schools in the state.
He, however, said the state government had concluded arrangement to distribute Ebola testing machines to schools before the resumption date.
The commissioner said two machines would be given to schools with population of 500 students and below, while schools with population of 1,000 students will get four machines each.
On school fees, Ali warned private schools to desist from arbitrary increase of fees without following the laid down principles and equally warned public school principals to stop using their personal bank accounts for saving of school fees.
“All public schools must make frantic efforts to remit school fees to the government coffers in due time and as a matter of urgency open school accounts, in case they don’t have an active school account,” he said.
