Indeed it as been an uneasy week for the Federal government, After several months of speculation, the federal government has disclosed when it will announce the official date for the reopening of schools nationwide although this is not the first time the Federal government would be puting students in an anxious state due to its promise and unpromise trend, one should not really bank on a concrete outcome on the supposed date. 

Schools across the country have been closed since March 2020 due to the spread of the COVID-19 disease.

The federal government has circulated safe guidelines for school owners to adhere to although this is not the first time doing so. 

But the ministry of education on Friday, July 17, said an official date for safe reopening of schools will be announced once the safe guidelines for safe resumption are put in place by the school onwers which would be before next month. 

This disclosure was made public by the minister of state for education, Emeka Nwajiuba, in Abuja.


The minister noted that school owners are expected to undertake self-assessment of the circulated guidelines which was well spelt out by the Federal government for the reopening and send feedback to state ministries of education, not later than 29th July 2020.

 He further more made it known that the guidelines were outlined after the federal ministry of education consulted widely with the federal ministry of health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

Meanwhile, a university don, Professor Peace Chinedum Babalola, has offered a piece of advice on how schools can be safely reopened amid the growing anxiety over whether or not the Nigerian government should reopen schools,


Babalola who is the vice-chancellor of Chrisland University, Abeokuta, Ogun state, advised the federal government to adopt “staggered” resumption of schools. Daily Trust reports that Babalola said this on Wednesday, July 15, during the university's virtual matriculation ceremony a new and welcomed approach during these stay home period 

The university don advised the government to reopen schools for final year students at all levels to enable them to finish their education in time.

She, however, advised that the government needs to “stagger” resumption of students to achieve social distancing.

It was also reported that , the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Lagos state chapter, has said it is not in agreement to the reopening of schools due to the rising cases of COVID-19, but come to think of it are there measures at homes to curb this virus? Or in market places? 

The chairman of the NUT in Lagos state, Adesina Adedoyin, made the disclosure when reacting to the decision of the south-west governors to commence the West African Senior Secondary Examinations (WASSCE) in August.


Adedoyin who faulted the move by the governors cited the rising COVID-19 cases and the limited testing centres available in the state as a cause for concern, but still he didn't provide a solution for the government concerning the students in the market places , This Day reported, although he is not to be blamed cause He is still getting paid for a job He is not doing while his private school partners are wallowing in hunger. 

What is your take on this 

Should the Government open schools and provide PPE's to curb the Virus or allow the students to continue moving around the streets and market places where there are no protective equipments? 

Shouldn't we learn to start living with this Virus just as other countries have?
