Rumours that schools are set to reopen on June 8 have been dismissed by the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba.
He revealed this while speaking at the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 yesterday.
He further advised parents and guardians to disregard such information.
“June 8 school resumption date report is false,” he said.
Further, the minister explained the new model the Federal Government was working on which would ensure that all students dont return to school at the same time.
According to Nwajiuba, “The plan entails adopting a two-shift system and allowing those who will write exams to return earlier than others.
“Use this period to upgrade skills and think of how to make their teachings impactful. Those running the secondary schools should think of what to do so that when
“We are also looking at having sanitization booths working with NASENI. It is a forewarning to private and State governments to ensure that these things are put in place before schools can reopen.”
