The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has ordered the resumption of tertiary institutions owned by the state government.
Mr Makinde gave this order this week, according to a statement by the Commissioner for Education, Olasukanmi Olaleye.
The statement said the governor had approved September 28 as the resumption date for tertiary institutions in the state.
This is despite warnings by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) and Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COASU) that the institutions are not yet safe from COVID-19.
Mr Makinde also approved the new academic calendar for primary and secondary schools in the state.
