Election should be conducted in Nigeria while the government maintain the closure of schools.
The federal government of Nigeria, president Muhammad Buhari had earlier declared the closure of schools in the state due to the pandemic Corona virus disease.
However, the minister of education in Nigeria, Malam Adamu Adamu had stated that the stoppage of schools' closure in Nigeria cannot be specified yet untill the country is free of Covid-19. The minister of education also maintained that he didn't care if Nigerian students lose a whole academic year but he only care about their safety.
Education begets development, it is the source of development to developing and under-developed countries in the world, isn't it? If so why have we neglected education in Nigeria?
The fact is that Nigerian politicians are self-centered and egocentric. If not that they are being selfish, they should have open schools and order the students to go back to school with some precautionary directives to prevent them from all form of infections.
However, Such precautionary measures Include: provison of adequate classes to avoid overcrowding of students in a classroom, provison of face mask for the students, provison of Acholic hand sanitizer and soap for the students as this will help them in personal cleaning and hygiene etcetera.
The fact is that they will never do this but always want to have their way. Can you imagine in a state where there is closure of schools due to measure to contain the spread of Covid-19, election will be conducted. Is this reasonable enough? To me, it's actually wrong. If the government had refused to open schools in the state, they should have decided not to conduct any election as well. why have they tend to conduct election in some part of the country?
Should election be conducted in Nigeria while the federal government refuse to open schools?
To me, it is actually wrong that election should be conducted in Ondo and Edo state in Nigeria if schools remain closed in the state in order to contain the spread of Covid-19.
Election is the process whereby electorates or voters are given the chance to elect their candidate of choice into political office.
During election will cannot avoid overcrowding so why would election be conducted if we don't want the spread of Covid-19 in the states? Yes, I know there are practicable measures that could be taken to prevent overcrowding during the forthcoming election in the two states but why has the government decided to closed schools in the states claiming that they are avoiding the spread of Covid-19 and ensuring the safety of lives of the citizens. If election will be conducted in the two states, Ondo and Edo States in Nigeria, the government should open schools in the state and employ some strict directives as preventive measure to contain the spread of Covid-19 in schools.
Many students has became a victim of shocking occurrences in the states due to the closure of schools by the federal government. Some of them who are known to be intelligent have became dullards due to their long stay at home without resuming to school.
In lieu of this, I hereby appeal to Nigerian government to lift the ban on schools resumption in the state and all students should resume to their various schools as soon as possible.
What do you think about this? Is it reasonable that election should be conducted in the states while the government refused to let our children back to school? Kindly drop your view in the comment box below.
