The monitoring team led by the Coordinating Director, OYOSUBEB, Mr. Jacob Dairo, visited schools within Ibadan metropolis, Oke-ogun, Ibarapa and zones in the State.
Mr. Dairo thanked Governor Seyi Makinde for the prompt release of funds for the seamless conduct of the exercise in the State, which ensured the preparation and printing of question papers and answer booklets early.
He urged school head-teachers to ensure adherence to the unified time-table, such that it will reflect the conduct of the exercise throughout the State.
