Few months ago, the Federal Government of Nigeria initially ordered the closure of schools and other sectors in the country due to the spread of coronavirus and as a proactive measure to prevent the further spread of the virus.
Eventually, after some months of lockdown, the Federal Government lifted the ban on all the sectors remaining the ban on school reopening.
Yesterday, The Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba talked about safe reopening of schools.
Chukwuemeka said schools are required to attempt self evaluation, and send criticism to State Ministries of Education, not later than 29th of July 2020. The Minister included that an official date for safe revival of schools will be declared once these rules have been set up.
The Minister said the Federal Ministry of Education, counselled broadly with the Federal Ministry of Health, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the Education in Emergency working group before creating and following the rules gave for the reviving of schools. He said that a component to evaluate and screen consistence with the rules will be set up.
Following the recent update from the Federal government on reopening of schools, there's still no specific date officially set for resumption of schools in Nigeria.
In my opinion, the Federal government should announce Monday 3rd of August 2020, as resumption date for schools nationwide so as to allow students continue with their studies.
However, the Federal government should consider reopening of schools because students are tired of staying at home.
Moreover, since the Federal government doesn't want to endanger the lives of students then schools should reopen under strict measures and guidelines. It's clear that students will adhere to the guidelines given for safe reopening because they wouldn't want a situation where by schools will reopen and close again due to violation of laid down rules.
What's your opinion? Is 3rd of August good for resumption of schools in the country.
