This is to inform all parents, teachers and the general public that all public primary schools in Edo State shall resume full activities on Monday 1st February 2021.
Parents are expected to make their children and wards ready for resumption on this date.
The Board wishes to reemphasize that all public-school teachers and head teachers are required to be present in their various schools.
Failure to resume work would be considered forfeiture of salary as the Edo State Government has activated the No Work, No Pay policy.
Head Teachers and Teachers who are desirous of staying away from work in support of the sponsored strike action by certain elements of the Edo State Branch of the National Union of Teachers, are required to hand over all school property in their custody to their respective Education Secretaries.
The Edo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) is collaborating with the relevant security agencies to ensure the protection of all public schools and any willful destruction of government property will be met with criminal prosecution to the fullest extent of the law.

The Edo State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers had on December 8 and 29, 2020 issued 21-day and 14-day ultimatum to the state government to its demands.
According to the Union state chairman, Pius Okhueleigbe, the state government refused to invite the Union for dialogue during the warning period hence the Union last week Monday decided to embark on indefinite strike.
The teachers are demanding for the payment of promotional arrears for teachers in Oredo, Orhionmwon and Uhunmwode local government areas from 2013 to 2015 amongst others.
