This programme, titled: “Securing Our Posterity with Foundation of Justice,” is set to hold on 10th of September, 2020.

The Memo further explained the order of the programme as follows:
A condolence visit will be paid to the family of the deceased.The students who are still around Oye-Ekiti are advised to be at the school gate by 8:00 am, ensuring the COVID-19 precautions and guidelines.
