School Reopening: Education Minister Debunks Rumours
Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, has debunked rumours of school reopening in two weeks’ time.
He disclosed this, during the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Thursday May 21, 2020.
Nwajiuba stated that no school will resume as being speculated.
He said there was no exact date yet for schools to resume, adding that schools will be reopened after they are “resourced properly”.
“We all are seriously interested in school reopening, and I believe we will reopen soon,” he said.
“But I can’t confirm what your children said, that we will reopen in two weeks. The issue around reopening has nothing to do with the availability of the schools or not.
“It has to do with national governance. The idea of shutting down the schools has nothing to do with the schools per se,” he added.
