Earlier today the secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, had hinted on guidelines for the reopening of schools.
The federal government is currently contemplating on having morning and afternoon classes for students of Primary, Secondary, and tertiary institutions.
Revealing this on Wednesday, state education minister Emeka Nwajiuba failed to announce on social media that schools would reopen on June 8.
In view of that Nwajiuba as quoted by Punch said, “Until we’re confident these kids can go to school, come back safely and don’t bring up COVID-19 with them and infect people who are more prone than they are, then we’re running a huge risk and God forbid, in our rush, anything happens to our kids, I’m not confident how anyone will recover what was lost.
We will be releasing a specification on what we want to look like when COVID-19 or post-COVID-19 reopen. We are not thinking about dealing with COVID-19 but we hope to be adjusting to COVID-19.
“In a country with more than 115,000 primary schools, you’ll understand that 35,000 of those in private need to decide to set the same level in others to enable children to join.
“We can have morning classes and afternoon classes and we’ll be split over the whole network so they can support us. I am not sure we will have classes at night. But for now, we can do with morning and evening.
