The federal government on Wednesday debunked allegation that schools will restart on June 8, 2020.
Minister of state for Education Emeka Nwajiuba who stated this during the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 said modalities that would lead to eventual resumption of schools are being looked into.
Earlier PTF Chairman and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha while congratulating Nigerian children on International children’s day said, “I wish to inform Nigerians that the Federal Ministry of Education will roll out measures for the self-reopening of schools.
“The Presidential Task Force wishes to use the occasion of this celebration to congratulate our children and assure them, their parents and all stakeholders alike that all hands are on deck to reopen schools at a safe time.
“We, therefore, use this medium to urge states, local governments, proprietors and all other stakeholders to begin to take steps that will facilitate an early and safe reopening.”
