The guidelines, which were announced on Friday by State Minister for Education Emeka Nwajiuba, cover four issues.

According to other reports, the government has consulted widely and decided that schools should reopen on 5 September, which the former vice-president sees as a positive development.

Atiku had criticized the federal government's cancellation of the West African Senior Education Examination (WASSCE).
