Nigeria’s Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has hinted that schools may resume after the ban on interstate travel must have been lifted across the Country.
The schools were closed down by the Federal government as part of the measure to halt the spread of the Coronavirus in the country.
The Education Minister disclosed this at the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID19 today June 8.
The Minister stated that the teachers and students should all be able to have access to roads to travel back to their schools for academic activities to resume. He further hinted that schools will not resume unless medical experts have given their nod for resumption of all academic activities.
“You heard about neighboring countries that reopened and shut down again. You have heard about numbers spiking as a result of reopening the schools. Of all the things I would like to do, I wouldn’t want to experiment with your children.
What we are planning is to actually bring in those exit years first as soon as those who are in charge of the blockade lift it because there is no way we can open our schools if teachers cannot come.
So, we are looking at somewhere after when this interstate lockdown is lifted because we need to have that kind of openness for even the children to move.”
