FG finally sets time to reopen schools in Nigeria despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the country with new cases being reported everyday by the NCDC

The Federal Government has finally set time for reopening of schools amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria.

9jatalkative reports that the Federal Government has said that schools may reopen in the country after the ban on interstate movement has been lifted.

Recall that the federal government of Nigeria earlier released a statement confirming that inter state movement could restart on the 21st of June, 2020 despite the pandemic

The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba revealed this during the briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja on Monday, 8th of June, 2020

He added that the government was been careful not to lead Nigerians into danger as Nigeria continues to record increased number of positive cases in the country

Nwajiuba pointed out that some countries that opened schools hurriedly shut them when their cases spiked, adding that the government had not published any date for school reopening as being speculated on social media.

Revealing that FG finally sets time to reopen schools, the minister for state on education said as seen below;

“We only want to open when it is safe to do and we have heard about neighbouring countries that opened and shut.”

“We have heard about cases spiking with children getting into school. Of all the things I will like to do, I will not like to experiment with your children.”

“We want a situation where once we are sure it is safe, we can then take them into school.”

“I have just finished a meeting with the representatives of WAEC and NABTEB and I understand how that worries our parents at the moment and how anxious our children are to know what next.”

“As soon as those in charge of the blockade lift it because there is no way we can open our schools if teachers can’t come.”

“So, we are looking at somewhere after the interstate lockdown is lifted and this is because we will need that kind of openness for the children to move.”

Schools were initially shutdown during the start of the coronavirus pandemic in order to minimise the spread of the dreaded coronavirus disease

9jatalkative can confirm that there are several indications now that the reopening of schools amid coronavirus in Nigeria is closer than before amid the outbreak of coronavirus in Nigeria
