BREAKING: Schools won’t reopen soon ― Minister of Education

—Says WAEC can’t determine resumption date

ABUJA — MINISTER of Education, Adamu Adamu, has said that Nigerian schools will not reopen any time soon until it is safe to do so because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He has therefore said that final year students preparing for the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) will not be allowed to return to school contrary to what had earlier been believed.

Addressing State House correspondents after the virtual meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in Abuja on Wednesday, Adamu stated that the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) cannot determine the resumption date of schools for Nigeria.

He said he would prefer that Nigerian students lose an academic year than to expose them to dangers.

He appealed to States that have announced the resumption of school in their states to reconsider their position so as not to jeopardize the lives of the students, adding, “It is not safe to reopen schools now.”

God will destroy him for saying that, they said no interstate and they are travelling interstate, they always had between without any distancing whenever they want to share nigerian money, they reopen that aviation, are they not going to seat to one another, coronavirus patient are not many, they are adding malaria patients to them, in order to market the pandemic all around and make money from the federal government, they should let each state reopen schools on their own without federal government affairs and let see the outcome.
