    During the presentation of the items, which include two lawnmowers, 49 jars of sanitisers, two jars of hand-washing liquid soap and two infrared thermometers, Aderibigbe said the gesture was meant to complement the efforts of the state government on the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.
    Aderibigbe, who is the chairman of the Oyo State Civil Service Commission, said that the state governor, Mr Seyi Makinde, had been dogged in his determination to safeguard the people of the state against the pandemic.

    He said the governor’s spirit had encouraged the members of AGSOSA to come together and think of how to assist their alma mater in keeping the pandemic in check, especially as the school is preparing to resume full academic activities.
    He urged the principals, teachers and students of the school to ensure proper use of the items for effective results and then promised that the association would replenish some of the materials, especially saniser and hand-washing soaps, from time to time.
    “I also urge them to be careful in the handling of the thermometers and use the devices effectively and indiscriminately, too.

    “They should use the thermometers for everybody, regardless of people’s social or economical standing. Even if the governor visits this school, I am sure he will be ready to submit himself to the temperature testing,” he said.

    Professor Oyelaran urged the school authorities to supervise the use of the items and prevail on the teachers and students to follow diligently anti-COVID-19 protocols, especially physical distancing.
