He advised Chief Inspectors of Education (CIEs) in the various local government areas, Principals and School Heads to involve traditional rulers, who will in turn inform their community leaders, to sensitize their subjects to ensure that their children and wards go back to school at the appropriate time.

Chief Ukah advocated the use of town criers and religious leaders to draw the attention of the people on the need for them to send their children and wards back to school on announced resumption date.
