Nigeria is currently having a pause on educational activities so as to keep students safe from the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic and also reduce the rate of  infectors.

The National Association of Nigerians Students South West Zone (NANS Zone D) under the leadership of Comrade Kappo Samuel wishes to commend the Ogun State Government for the brilliant initiative of hosting an electronic visual platform named ”OgunDigiClass” for students in primary and secondary schools across the state and to keep students educated while they are at home.
The measure which was put in place is to cushion the effect of the indefinite break embarked upon as a result of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic on the academic of of students at these levels is a welcome development.

It would be recalled that the government made a directive on the ban of the high density of gathering due to the COVID-19 virus, which subsequently informed the closure of all schools across the state.
With this decision made by the Ogun State Government on Tuesday, we are very sure students won't be idle at home and it will also keep the young champs brain refreshed. It will also serves as a means to show the technological advancement in the state.
This initiative of the state government in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology is to ensure that learners are still undergoing the learning process while on the unplanned and impromptu academic recess.

“OgunDigiClass” would daily feature top-notch educators who would handle core topics in English and Mathematics at both Primary and Secondary Schools levels.
This effort and initiative is as a result of good governance towards building a brighter future for students in the state. 

However, the leadership of NANS Zone D also use this as a clarion call to other Southwestern Governors to emulate this brilliant initiative by their Ogun State counterpart Prince Dr. Dapo Abiodun MFR by initiating something meaningful and educative so as not to make the students across the zone wile away the time during this period. If they are educationally engaged during this period, there will be better results South West secondary institutions can boast of during the West African and National Examinations and this will properly and safely engaged them during this trying times.

Digital learning is not only allowing students to access more information but also ensuring that the information in question is customizable and suitable to their personal needs. The opportunity to help every student learn at the best pace and path for them is the most important benefit of digital learning.

The Deputy Coordinator NANS South West Zone, Comrade Oladimeji Uthman however implores the state government to ensure that power supply is made available and also be more stable at this time if the initiative must serve its major purpose. 
I urge all parents and guardians to enjoin that appropriate measures are emplaced to enable their wards benefit from this second-to-non initiative and also every parents and guardians to allow their wards benefit from this initiative by making necessary provisions that will enable them access to the program at the time scheduled. 

As the world await a definite and lasting end to the scourge of the deadly virus, we implore every one to pay attentions to every detail of precautions against its transmission and spread and also urge parents and guardians to monitor their wards in this period, warn them not to wander around and also take heed to medical advices and respect the  precautionary measures in combating the deadly virus, COVID-19.
