Federal Government explains moves for reopening of schools
The Federal government of Nigeria has made clear, the move of reopening schools amid the corona virus pandemic.
This was shed more light upon by the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba while featuring in a program on Channels Television on Wednesday.
Nwajiuba explained that the Federal Government was making provisions for partial resumption of only graduating students, contrary to the reports that schools are opening fully.
The Minister stated that the partial resumption measures were put in place in order for the graduating students to progress.
“We examined it and we felt that it is important to allow those examinations to take place but ahead of them taking place, it is important that those children who have not had the opportunity to revise their syllabus, should have an opportunity to go through that and have a revision class before the exams.”
He also explained that measures are being put in place in order to safeguard the returning students from the coronavirus disease
“You all know that education is on the concurrent legislative list and we’ve asked that state government’s that own these schools, to provide places to wash hands, check the temperature of the children constantly, have sanitisers in place. Private schools should be able to provide that.
Last month, Nwajiuba gave hint on schools reopening in conjuction with the lift of interstate travel ban.
Recall that Federal Government had on Monday lifted the ban on interstate travel, announced by Secretary to the Government.
