FG gives hint on School resumption date


The Federal Government of Nigeria has cleared the air over school resumption date, saying the country

would not hastily reopen schools in order to avoid severe consequences that happened to other countries.

The Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, said this in Abuja on Monday during the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

He described as fake, reports that the government would reopen schools on June 21.

He said: “Any reopening of school would involve the advice of expert on when it is safer to reopen schools.

“This is to avoid the mistake of shipping the students in and out of school.”

He said the ministry would not lead Nigerians into danger because it was in a hurry to reopen schools.

“I’ll not want to experiment with your children.

“What we’re planning is to bring those that’ll be exiting from Junior Secondary to Senior and those who will be writing the West Africa Examinations Council to write their promotion exams.

“We’re, however, looking at when the interstate lockdown will be reopened so the children can move to write their exams in their schools,” he said.
