The Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government on Friday ordered the total reopening of all unity schools across the country.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, advised all institutions to obey and adhere to the guidelines for the reopening of schools, earlier announced by the presidential task force.
Adamu said all unity schools should open by October 12 “while states and private schools will determine their own modalities of reopening.”
Adamu equally warned that schools who fail to adhere to outlined COVID-19 safety protocols, risk closure if there is any outbreak from such learning facilities.
The government had ordered the closure of all schools several months back as a measure to control the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Nigeria
