The Federal Government has again disclosed that there are plans to soon reopen schools nationwide, saying, however, that no date had been set and that the two week time frame being suggested is unrealistic.
Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Minister for Education, made this known yesterday during the Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19.
Nwajiuba while responding to questions from the press said the schools would be reopened when the safety of the school children could be guaranteed and not a moment sooner.
He further added the FG was working with other relevant stakeholders and agencies of government to put the proper measures in place that would guarantee the safety of children.
“We all are seriously interested in reopening and I believe we will reopen soon.
But you heard the chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, say our actions are a single national response and everything we do flows from that. "
The Minister further informed that the five countries of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) were meeting to hash out further details after similar meetings with the Ministers of Education from the African Union (AU) on the same matter.
