UPDATE: FG stops earlier scheduled resumption of schools


The Federal Government has stopped the earlier planned resumption of federal schools in Nigeria.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu stated this in a Federal Executive Council meeting held on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to him, even the supposed West African Examination Council (WAEC) which was scheduled to hold from August 4th till 5th September 2020 will no longer hold because schools are not yet safe for resumption.

Adamu Adamu also implored state governments to reverse their own schedule for school resumption.

He stated that WAEC cannot determine when schools in Nigeria would resume and that he prefers Nigerian students adding an extra year in school than to get their healths endangered because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
