No going back on our earlier decision, schools remain closed till safety is guaranteed - FG

We are unshakeable, our decision still stands, hence no going back says FG, schools remain closed till safety is guaranteed.

Today, after a virtual Federal Executive council meeting presided over by president Buhari today in Abuja at the council chambers.

The Hon. Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba said that the federal government decision not to reopen schools still stands, it's not yet safe to carry on with school activities across the country, hence , schools remain closed until the safety of our children is guaranteed.

Hon Nwajiuba, make this revelation news reporters sequel to the end of the eighth virtual federal executive council meeting, on Wednesday.

Recall the, Nigerian student at all levels has been at home for the past three months, following the federal government order to suspend all school activites across the country since March in it's bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus, which has become a global threat to entire countries of the world.

We should as well remember lately, that the house of representatives has demanded for the reopening of schools, so as to enable all final-year students to write their 2020 West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

" All academic institutions remain closed for now till adequate safety is guaranteed'- the Honourable Minister said. 

Maintaining that it will be a big risk which the federal government is not ready to take, for school to partially resume amid the rising number of COVID-19 cases.

Nwajiuba pointed out that the as of yesterday being Tuesday, Nigeria recorded 33,616 cases of COVID-19, with 13,792 recoveries and 754 deaths as shown in the NCDC statistics.

As for WAEC, they are as well considering a change of date with the view of accommodating everyone - Nwajiuba added

“We are still meeting with parents over that, we are not confident yet that everywhere is safe, the number of COVID-19 infections from the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) are still very alarming" ,the minister said, adding that their decision has already been communicated parents and all stakeholders in the education sectorof the country.

Well, I think the federal government is really concerned about the safety of Nigerian , and I think it's better for everyone to be safe and stay free from the virus.

Just as they say ", prevention is better than cure". So lets prevent it by staying safe.

Thanks for reading !
