After a series of meetings and deliberations by the Federal Ministry of Education, Chief Executives of examination bodies, Honorable Commissioners of Education in the 36 states, the National Union of Teachers(NUT) and the proprietors of private schools, it has been unanimously agreed upon that Secondary schools in the country are to reopen on the 4th of August 2020. The reopening however, is only for exit classes - students in their final year.
From the day of resumption, the students are being mandated to prepare in the next two weeks for the West African Examination Council(WAEC) examinations which has been scheduled to commenced on the 17th of August 2020.
A passionate appeal is made by the Federal Government through the Presidential task force on Covid-19 as well public spirited Nigerians to assist schools across the country, enabling them fast track the preparations for safe reopening.
This decision by these stakeholders is a bold step towards securing the future of the Nigerian student in spite of the carnage brought about by Covid-19. We hope that similar fruitful meetings would be held to bring an end to ASUU strike and a reopening of tertiary institutions.
