FG backtracks, suspends resumption of schools amid COVID-19

The federal government of Nigeria has suspended its earlier plan to reopen schools to enable Nigerian students to participate in the West African Senior School Certificate Examinations earlier scheduled for August 5 and September 5.

Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, speaking after Wednesday’s virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in the State House said schools would not be reopened until the COVID-19 pandemic drastically subsides.

Adamu said the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) had no right to determine resumption date for schools in Nigeria.

He also said Nigerian students would rather be made to lose an academic year than to be exposed to danger.
