A recent study refuted by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) called on the federal government to postpone the reopening of schools until 2021 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. 

ASUU chairman Professor Biodun Ogunyemi provided the statement in a phone chat with reporters on Sunday 19 July. Ogunyemi clarified that what ASUU said was that the FG should only require the reopening of schools when it's safe for students, according to the online news source. 

First of all, we have not said that universities should not be reopened until 2021. We've only advised reopening schools whenever it's considered safe for our children, he said.

ASUU chairman Ogunyemi says the union hasn't asked FG to delay the reopening of school until 2021. Ogunyemi added that the federal government should go beyond simply developing guidelines for secure reopening on paper to ensure that the guidelines are fully implemented from primary to tertiary institutions for students' safety. 

The ASUU chairman also stated that even though many schools may Reopen, universities will not reopen because there is an unfinished problem between the lecturers and the government.
