According to Punchng, the Minister of State for Education, Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, has disclosed that; schools might be considered to reopen as sessions might be splitted into morning and afternoon classes to maintain distancing and other factors.
He said; “We may have classes in the morning and classes in the afternoon so that we will have the whole of the infrastructure divided, provided they can serve us. I am not sure we will have classes at night, but we can do with morning and afternoon for now.”
The Minister of State for Education, also added that no date has been fixed for full schools’ resumption.
Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba made this statement during the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday, in Abuja.
Recall that, in March, the Nigerian Federal Government ordered the closure of all schools and institutions in the country. This was done as a precautionary measures to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus which broke out into the country, as the Nigerian President ordered the suspension of all educational activities in the country, while students were told to return to their respective homes.
Following this, it’s been over 4 months since all schools have been closed down with WAEC examination being done currently, as secondary school students in terminal classes have been allowed to write WAEC exams.
Since no date has been fixed for school resumption, we still await an update from the Minister of State for Education.
