The issue of school reopening has been the trending news all over the country on all news channels, radio stations and online. The federal government who ordered the closure of schools in march due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to keep the students safe from contracting the virus but it's four months now and students cannot take it any longer as they are impatiently waiting for federal government to reopen schools for them to return back to class.

The Ex-minister of education Prof. Tunde Adeniran has urged the government to open schools so that learning can commence. He said that the ministry of education should set up an inspection panels to visit universities and assess their level of preparedness for resumption and give go ahead to any that has satisfied the requirements for reopening.

In an interview with PUNCH newspaper on Sunday, he was asked about the danger of delay in school reopening and he said,

"Government should make sure that measures to prevent the COVID-19 virus should be put in place in primary and secondary schools and reopen them as the school calendar is being affected. Then he went on to say that we are in the age of technology where we cannot be defeated by what is happening and we should be anticipating things. We must not put the lives of our children in danger and at the same time we cannot afford to keep them out of school totally.

What is your take on this? Do you agree with the former minister or do you disagree with him?
