School resumption latest from ASUU and WAEC(updated)

Nigerian schools resumption upto today the head of universities lecturers union want government to keep schools closed until next year.

The story is that the President, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have asked the Nigerian government to shut down schools till 2021 to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

This day came on top the Nigerian government decision not to let Unity Schools write the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) that was supposed to start August 4.

Asuu said they will stand behind the government on top the decision to postpone the exam as the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, said the ministry has met with WAEC people on Monday and they have agreed to consult with four other countries to come up with a new date for the exam.

However, in the interview with local news people Punch, their Asuu president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi said that Nigerias shoult look at Kenya, that close down all their schools till 2021, on top the same issue saying safety is important even if they need to lock up schools till 2021.

HE also said that no one should use a childs life for granted and that is why he advised that schools should be shut down for now.

In a statement that Asuu released yesterday, they said the way that government schools is now filled wit overcrowded classrooms that running water will be almost impossible for students and teachers to practice social distancing and personal hygiene.

But social media have been running comments if this talk from Asuu is really to benefit teachers or their lecturers.

Government postponed the WAEC examination for Senior Secondary School students that were supposed to start 4 August because of the coronavirus pandemic and even planed to reopen schools for SS 3 students to do revision for their exams but went back on their decision saying that it will not be safe.

But all that still need rethinking.
