The Nigerian Government has ordered the reopening of all Federal schools in the country, two weeks after schools in Lagos, country’s commercial capital, have begun full academic activities.
The country’s Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, made the announcement during a press briefing in Abuja on Friday.
He advised all institutions to obey and adhere to the guidelines for the reopening of schools, earlier announced by the presidential task force.
He said all unity schools should open by October 12 “while states and private schools will determine their own modalities of reopening.”
Many states including Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Kano and Enugu, have since announced dates for the reopening of schools in their states.
Government ordered the closure of tertiary institutions, secondary and primary schools nationwide following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in the country in March.
