State Commissioner for Education, Ibrahim Ali, disclosed this at the flag-off of training for 13,000 teachers on prevention of EVD ahead of the September 22 resumption date for primary and post primary schools.

Ali, who stressed the need for preventive measures against the spread of the disease, urged participants to ensure strict compliance among staff and students on good hygiene.

He said N41 million was earmarked for the training, refreshment and transportation of the teachers, while N75 million was for the purchase of thermometers.

“We are training about 13,000 teachers across the three senatorial zones. N41 million has been earmarked for the training, refreshment and transportation of teachers, while N75 million is for the purchase of equipment from the Federal Ministry of Health.

“And we are purchasing 10,000 to give two to each school, and in the event where a school has more than 1,000 students, it is at a liberty to have more,” commissioner said.
