FG approves full reopening of 104 Unity schools
Seven months after closing its schools across the country in order to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic, the federal government has announced October 12, for full reopening of 104 Unity Schools in Nigeria.
The news was broken on Friday, October 2, by the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, in Abuja while explaining that the COVID-19 curve has been flattened.
It was gathered that the minister said state governments and private school owners across the country, are, however at liberty to fix resumption dates and ensure that there are adequate safety measures while doing so.
Adamu also warned that schools who fail to adhere to outlined COVID-19 safety protocols, risk closure if there is an outbreak from such learning facilities. Recall that Lagos, Oyo, Kano, and Enugu have since announced dates for the reopening of schools in their states.
