The federal government has instructed all schools in the country to resume.

Schools in Nigeria were shut in March, following the Coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking at a media briefing on Friday, Adamu Adamu, minister of education, said ”unity schools” are to reopen on October 12 while private and state schools are to determine their resumption dates.

“We have consulted widely with all stakeholders in the education sector. Our eyes and ears are opened to the international media. I’m glad to report that there has not been any single case of COVID-19 in all Unity Schools. No single fatality among the students,” he said.

“We have come to the conclusion that we have to review our decisions. After consultation with PTF, we have resolved that our Unity Schools be opened on October 12, 2020.”

The minister urged the institutions to maintain strict compliance with COVID-19 guidelines.
