Both the State and Federal Governments have been under a lot of pressure, regarding the reopening of schools in Nigeria.
Recall that schools have been shut down since March this year, and a lot of parents as well as students; have been agitating for schools to be reopened.
The Federal Government has earlier stated that schools will remain closed in the country; until the country is able to curtail the spread of the virus, as the the lives of citizens is of paramount importance.
Despite this however, many are still keen on the reopening of schools in the country.
Thus, the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, addressing the issue on the reopening of schools, in the country; on Monday, 22nd June, 2020, has advised all State Governments on what to do.
Speaking on behalf of the President in a briefing with the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19; Emeka Nwajiuba explained to Governors across the country; not to yield to the pressures the people are placing on them towards the reopening of schools.
In his speech, he explained that the country is not safe yet for schools to reopen; owing to the fact that the virus keeps spreading.
The Minister thus explained that no State has been given the guidance to reopen schools yet in the country; as it is still not safe to do so.
What do you think? Is this a good move or not?
