Eid-El-Fitr: Edo Government Postpones School Resumption Date

The Government of Edo State has announced the postponement of the resumption date for the third term 2022/2023 session from April 24 to April 25.

Dr Oni Ekhosuehi, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Benin, noting that the date was changed due to the Eid-el-Fitr festivities.

The Permanent Secretary added that academic activities would commence on the first day of resumption.

“This date supersedes the one stated in the 2022/2023 harmonised school calendar.

“Please note that teaching and learning commence immediately from the first day of resumption. Hence, parents and guardians should release their wards on the stipulated date to resume school.

“Any Parent/Guardian whose ward (pupil/Student) is found loitering, hawking or engaged in child labour during school hours will be arrested and prosecuted.

“To this end, school heads should ensure that classrooms and school environments are clean, safe and ready for commencement of academic activities,” he added.
