The Arab states have decided to open schools in defiance of the federal government's order

Southwestern states, commonly known as the 6 Yoruba region, have decided to open their schools for high school students to write their WAEC exams next month.

The states include Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Osun and Ekiti.

The decision contradicts the federal government's decision not to open schools and not to write the WAEC this year.

You will recall that last week, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, announced that Nigeria would not be participating in the WAEC exam due to the rapid spread of Coronavirus.

The commissioners of education, advisers to governors on education and heads of state education agencies made the decision in an online meeting.

They agreed that schools in the states should be reopened so that high school students could sit for exams.

In a statement released after the meeting, they announced that students will return to school on August 3, 2020.

They also agreed to appeal to the federal government to postpone the exams three weeks after the students returned to school.

They then appealed to the WAEC to postpone the exam to August 24.

This is in stark contrast to the decisions of the Northern States of Nigeria.

It was report to you that the education commissioners of the 19 northern states of Nigeria have expressed their approval of the suspension of the last grade classes by the federal government.

They said schools would not be reopened and would not participate in this year's WAEC exam.

Kaduna State Commissioner of Education, Dr. Shehu Makarfi, who is also the chairman of the Northern Nigeria Education Commissioners, signed the document.

Thirteen (13) state commissioners in attendance were from Kaduna, Bauchi, Gombe, Niger, Nasarawa, Adamawa, Taraba, Kogi, Kwara, Katsina, Kano, Borno and Jigawa.

The commissioners commended the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, for his decision to ban the opening of schools and expressed their support for him.
