Osun State government on Tuesday warned school authorities in the state against sales and distribution of uniforms to students in their domain.
The state’s Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, who gave the directive at the end of the state Executive Council meeting in Osogbo, said the reversal to old uniforms in the state would take effect from the 2020/2021 academic session.
The state government had earlier directed schools in the state to revert to the recognised public uniform as against the current single uniform regime in the state.
Egbemode said: “The council decided that no school authority or principal is allowed to assume the duty of selling or distributing uniforms to students. It is not the monopoly or exclusive preserve of any school or individual to do so.
“The council has established this commerce-driven guideline to provide an avenue for businesses within the state to receive a boost during this period.
