Ahead of official resumption of primary and secondary schools in Osun State, the state government has organised a sensitisation workshop for teachers in the state-owned tertiary institutions and the physically challenged on how to prevent the dreaded Ebola virus.
The state government, through the Ministries of Health, Environment and Sanitation trained some selected primary and secondary teachers and principals on what to do to prevent the spread of the disease.
The state government also trained traditional rulers and various organisations, including members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and Road Transport Employer Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) who would also train others on the scourge.
Also, the higher institution lecturers, who were part of the workshop, are expected to train others in their various institutions, while the physical challenged will also train their colleagues in their various local government areas of the state.
Speaking during the training session, the state Commissioner for Health, Temitope Ilori, charged all participants that, the knowledge acquired should be properly used in their various institutions and local government areas on how to prevent the disease by taking necessary preventive measures.
