All schools in Nigeria can now reopen.
This is according to the directive from the Federal Government of Nigeri.
The latest news comes six months after schools were shutdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education, disclosed this during a press briefing in Abuja.
The minister further advised all schools to adhere to the guidelines for the reopening of schools.
The minister said all unity schools should open by October 12, “while states and private schools will determine their own modalities of reopening.
“We have consulted widely with all stakeholders in the education sector. Our eyes and ears are opened to the international media. I’m glad to report that there has not been any single case of COVID-19 in all Unity Schools. No single fatality among the students,” he said.
“We have come to the conclusion that we have to review our decisions. After consultation with PTF, we have resolved that our Unity Schools be opened on October 12, 2020.”
