The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has advised the FG to stop the reopening of schools in the Country for now.
Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, the Union Leader said no reasonable Country would take such chances unless parents would be told to sign an undertaking.
The Union supported the FG decision not to allow any SSS 3 students throughout the nation to write this year WASSCE scheduled for August 4, 2020.
We could remembered that the announcement of exam date have made some states like Oyo, Lagos to pick their resumption date.
In fact, the Oyo state under the leadership of Engineer Seyi Mankind have already resumed the schools activities.
The Union Leader insisted that the FG should shut down schools till 2021 to ensure adequate and effective preparations. He cited some Countries like Kenya as a reference that they have announced the closing of all their schools till 2021
Those Countries have exam to write too, but they considered the lives of their children first that is why they took that decision.
If the FG meet all conditions that can safeguard life and health of Nigerian Citizens, then they can reopen the schools.
The ASUU added that the union had not seen any evidence to show that schools were secured for students to go back.
