Federal Government Ask States To Ignore Pressure From Parents To Reopen Schools

 

The Minister of State Education, Mr. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday, said reopening schools now could worsen the COVID-19 situation in the country.

He noted that his ministry did not give Oyo State any guidance to reopen schools. 

Nwajiuba announced that final year students preparing for the West African Examination Council, Senior Secondary School Examination, the National Examination Council and National Business and Technical Education Board examinations would soon be allowed to resume for revisions.

He urged parents and other stakeholders to continue to bear with the government while “the situation is being monitored so as to guarantee the safety of children when the schools are eventually re-opened.”

Nwajiuba therefore advised parents and care givers to continue to keep the children save at home for their and everyone’s sake and future
