Prof. Alonge noted that the School-On-Air Programme is supported by Airtel with a donation of 500mb of data to each participating student.
The Task Force acting Chairman said in the statement that: “The Commissioner for Education, Barrister Olasunkanmi Olaleye, who briefed the Task Force, said the programme being run on the Radio and Television Channels of the Broadcasting Corporation of Oyo State (BCOS), was already reaching between 60 and 70 percent of the student population.
The Task Force was further alerted to the decision of Governor Seyi Makinde to roll out palliatives to residents of the State within a short while.
The statement noted that the Ministry of Special Duties and Women Affairs and Social Inclusion are working out the modalities for the distribution of the palliatives in a way that would ensure the people who are really in need are directly reached.
