In the same vein, a visit to Imaguero Secondary School in Benin City, the situation was not different.
Speaking with The Nigerian OBSERVER, the principal of Imaguero Senior Secondary School Mr. Victor Omorogbe hinted that, although, all his staff were fully present to carry out their academic duties as usual, the low turn-out of his, students was discouraging adding that, in spite of the poor response of students, the few ones that resumed, however taught some skeletial academic work.
Omorogbe however, urged parents to encourage their children to resume, stressing that, school had fully resumed with teachers ready with their complete lesson notes.
Some students who spoke with newsmen however, expressed joy over their resumption after the long holiday noting that, their responses to resumption on the first day of school was not a waste following the knowledge they acquired in what they were taught by their teachers.
