In a recent meeting between the federal government and all the educational stakeholders in the country, 29th of July has been declared date for school resumption. Indeed, Nigerians especially students will be smiling over this new development.
Of course why not. For over four months now, students of all levels have been at home following the lockdown orchestrated by the corona virus pandemic. When other bodies such as transport sectors both air land and sea, companies cum businesses resumed activities, education sector did not. This is because of the inherent high risk that the students would face.
In a statement signed by the Director of Information, Federal Ministry of Education, Ben Goong, has it that, schools had been given till July 29, 2020, to ensure that their facilities are ready for resumption in line with the guidelines issued by the ministry of education for safe reopening of places of learning.
The ministry said that July 29 has been declared deadline for resumption of schools for all categories of learners.
“We have consulted widely with stakeholders in the sector, including commissioners of education in all the states of the federation, the Association of Private School Owners of Nigeria,(APSON), National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, (NAPPS), Provosts of Colleges of Education, Rectors of Polytechnics, Vice-Chancellors of Universities, some State Governors, and development partners."
“We appreciate the concern shown by all stakeholders and note the divergent views expressed on the matter.
“Parents should rest assured that the safety of our students and teachers is paramount as we work assiduously towards the speedy reopening of our schools for the exit classes to take external examinations.” The statement concluded.
It is our prayers that the Federal government did not reverse this deadline again. I believe you would join in this prayer to.
Let's hear your take on this. Also do share to update other students, teachers and parents.
