It’s another Sunday and your darling daytime talk show, Rubbin’ Minds returns to the screen with host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
As new developments emerge in the country following the increase in confirmed cases of COVID-19, today’s conversation will feature chats on the phased easing of Lockdown in key states of Lagos, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) from May 4. It will be great to hear unique perspectives on the safety concerns associated with the latest decision, lessons to learn from other countries, the worrying Kano situation and the call by the Health Minister for hotels, individuals to give their buildings as isolation centers.
In the same vein, the Nigerian Workers’ Day was for the first time in the country (at least, since independence), devoid of the traditional parade ground festivities across the nation. Jane Egerton-Idehen, Country Manager, for Avantii Communications will join host, Ebuka in discussing how effective the ‘new’ concept of ‘Work From Home’ has been, how workers and business owners can best ease into the new lockdown relaxation order and the conversation of allowances and provision of insurances for the frontline workers.
Folawe Omikunle, Founder Teachforall.org will also be on the ground to offer insights on ‘Virtual learning as the new future of learning’ which is gradually gaining ground in the middle and upper echelon of society, the effectiveness of homeschooling, TV and Radio learning and in warming up to the realities of the lockdown, how most primary, secondary, and tertiary institutions are now finding new ways to ensure the curriculum is met.
It promises to be as insightful as always. Tune in at 3pm to Channels Television.
