The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu announced that all Unity Schools in the country is expected to resume with effect from October 12. He stated this during a press conference in Abuja.
The minister said that schools across the country have the right to fix their own resumption date but must ensure adequate safety measures are adhered to.
Adamu warned that any failure from schools to adhere to outlined COVID-19 safety protocols, will result in the closure of such school once an outbreak of COVID-19 rises from the school.
He said, “We have consulted widely with all stakeholders in the education sector. Our eyes and ears are opened to the international media.
“I’m glad to report that there has not been any single case of COVID-19 in all Unity Schools. No single fatality among the students.
We have come to the conclusion that we have to review our decisions. After consultation with PTF, we have resolved that our Unity Schools be opened on October 12, 2020.”
