The Rector of The Polytechnic, Ibadan (TPI), Professor Kazeem Adekunle ADEBIYI has advocated for keeping of up to date and accurate information as part of management’s efforts to curtail the dreaded Covid- 19 pandemic in our tertiary Institutions.
Professor Adebiyi said this at a lecture he presented recently at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso.
Professor Adebiyi who presented a paper on staff/ staff relationship under new norms and values in Education Delivery after Covid -19 stressed the need for the Tertiary Institutions in the country to provide transparent communication in their day to day activities as part of the strategies to curtail the dreaded Covid- 19 pandemic.
In a statement signed by the School PRO Soladoye Adewole, Adebiyi said management of the institutions should as a rule listen to their staff and respond to concerns about their wellbeing.
Professor Adebiyi who noted that the Management should organise ways to ease the burdens on their staff emphasised that attention must also be given to their mental health and well- being.
He noted that the closure of educational institutions as a preventive measure against the spread of Covid- 19 has affected the education, wellbeing and functioning of all parties involved and efforts must be made to curtail it by living with it safely.
