Admist The Ravaging Pandemic, Nigerian State Announces New Date For School Resumption.

The Covid 19 pandemic has really brought things to a screeching halt globally. It has been a thing of concern that since the ravaging virus came on board, no cure has been found yet.

For the past four month, students have been at home. It all started with the one week warning strike from Asuu and then the virus came and has kept students at home indefinitely.

Although there has been rumours that the federal government has been in touch with the ministry of education to make out ways that would be conducive for learning admist the pandemic.

But few weeks ago, the federal minister of education made it clear that they have no idea when schools would reopen,and they wouldnt want go put students lives in danger. He also said Nigeria would not take part in the forthcoming WASSCE.

But according to #Dailypost, The Ekiti State Government has announced the change in the resumption of pupils and students in graduating classes at both private and public schools from July 20 to August 3.

It was made known through a media chat on wednesday by the state's commissioner for Education, Mr Foluso Daramola in Ado-Ekiti.

He explained that the South-West states held an online meeting where each state were told to plan for resumption of school.

He said, “Pupils in primary six and students in JSS 3, SSS 3 were to resume on the new date.”

The commissioner also advised parents and guardians to provide three face masks each for their wards.

According to him, the government would make available all protective materials needed to curb the spread of COVID-19 to public and private schools.

He also said that they'd maintsin the social distancing at all cost.

After almost 4 months of school closure, students have hope.

We hope that other states would follow suite and then the federal government would also give universities a go ahead order.
