Federal Government Plans to Reopen Schools

The Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, on Monday, said that discussions are ongoing with stakeholders on resumption of schools.

Nwajiuba, who was speaking in Abuja, during the Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 stated that the President Buhari led administration has received feedbacks from all universities as it prepares to resume school.

Nwajiuba stated: “On resumption of schools, discussion is still ongoing.

“We have received feedbacks from all universities on their states of preparedness.

“These are being tabled before the PTF,” Nwajiuba added.

However, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SSG) Boss Mustapha cautioned state said that state governments who have already announced reopening of schools in their states should be wary.

Mustapha stressed that even as the nation plans to reopen more sectors, all ‘hands must be on deck’, and everybody must stick with the winning strategy, which is anchored on the ability of Nigeria’s health organizations to contain the spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
