Ministry of education makes new announcement on resumption

 

The Minister of State for Education, Mr Emeka Nwajiuba, has announced that despite the announcement made by President Muhammadu

Buhari on the gradual easing of the lockdown, there still has not been any update on the resumption of schools.

Mr Nwajiuba made this statement in a press briefing on Tuesday by the Presidential Task Force on COVID 19 in Abuja.

President Buhari had on Monday, relaxed the lockdown in FCT, Lagos and Ogun States and as a result, questions were asked about the effect of this relaxation on schools. To this, Mr Nwajiuba said that the Federal Ministry of Education could not foresee or give any date when schools will be resuming in the country.

He said, “The President actually addressed the issue of the opening of the economy gradually. Until that is done, we can’t foresee or immediately tell you when all the schools will be reopened. It will not be proper for us to simply give you a date. It has to be in tandem with these opening terms. We don’t want to put our children at risk. None of these schools can function on their own without the society”

When asked about students moving to the next level and how it would affect them, the minister said that preparations are being made and these plans will be implemented when they are satisfied that children promoting have learnt enough.

According to the minister, On the question of children promoting to the next class, those exams will happen when we are satisfied that the children have learnt what is enough for them to move. For those who are in the exit classes of junior basic and senior secondary schools, we are preparing them and will continue to.

“This will go on until we are sure that they are equipped for the external examinations”

The minister further stated that the West African Examination Council has not cancelled their exams but have only postponed it indefinitely.

He said, “This indefinite nature is so that we can get a definite date. Students will still have to go and take those exams when we are sure that we have taken good care of the pupils.”

A group, Citizens Action for Good Governance (CAGG) has called for a halt of the #EndSARS protests, decrying the alarming increase in violent assaults carried out against both citizens and police officers.

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Monday, October 19, the national coordinator of CAGG, Nazir Galadanchi said the protesters should reason with the government and listen to calls and appeals by many well-meaning citizens. Galadanchi further said the heightened insecurity has tarnished the image of the country amongst the comity of nations.

His words:

“The peace of Nigeria should have been the overriding imperative of all. No person or group, no matter how aggrieved, should be allowed to undermine or threaten national security, unity, tranquillity, peace and harmony. “We would like to appeal to our fellow Nigerians, especially young people to halt the protests for their safety because their demands are already being attended to by the government, and we are optimistic that there will be a better life for all.’’

He also appealed to leaders and persons of influence, including celebrities and religious leaders, to persuade their followers and fans to discontinue the protests.
