june 8th resumption date

Latest information reaching our news desk today, is coming from the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, who has dismissed the claim of schools resuming on June 8th, 2020.

This perceived date for resumption has spread far and wide, without any credible source. Speaking on this date, the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, has dismissed the report which is spreading like wildfire on social media that all academic institutions in Nigeria will be reopened for academic activities on Monday, 8th June, 2020.

Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, the minister of state for Education who spoke at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 today May 27th, said a statement that was alleged to have emanated from the task force directing the opening of schools, is not true and there is no credible source.

The minister further disclosed that the Nigerian government is being careful not to allow children to return to schools and expose them to the COVID-19 virus. He added that the Ministry of education has been directed to follow the guidelines and advice from the Ministry of Health and the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) before schools can be reopened.
