Nigeria’s Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, has said that no date has been fixed yet for full schools’ resumption, even though the Federal Government had continued to engage stakeholders.
Mr. Nwajiuba said this while briefing the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday in Abuja.
The Minister expressed optimism that the date for resumption is around the corner stating that none has been fixed yet and as such, there will be no brandishing of dates.
Nigerian schools have been shut for over three months to prevent further spread of COVID-19 which has caused the death of over 1,000 people in the nation as at the 24th of August, 2020.
However, students in exit classes, mainly JSS3 and SSS3 students, resumed earlier in August 2020 to commence their final examinations.
Many nigerians feel that the resumption of exit students is an indication that other students will resume soon.
