The Federal Government has directed unity schools across the country to reopen, after months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The schools are to commence academic activities on Monday, October 12.
Mallam Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education, stated this in a press conference in Abuja on Friday.
Adamu announced that schools across the country are at liberty to fix resumption dates and ensure adequate safety measures.
“We have consulted widely with all stakeholders in the education sector. Our eyes and ears are opened to the international media,” he said.
“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.”
