On Friday, the Federal Government announced that all the 104 Unity Schools in Nigeria should resume October 12.
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, said schools across the country, are at liberty to fix resumption dates and ensure adequate safety measures, during a press conference in Abuja.
Adamu warned that schools who fail to adhere to outlined COVID-19 safety protocol, risk closure if there is an outbreak from such institutions.
“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.”
