(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – As the federal government plans to review the January 18 date earlier scheduled for the resumption of schools across the country due to the increase of COVID -19, some Nigerians on social media have condemned the decision describing it as a setback to education.
African Examiner had earlier reported that the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, had stated that the date will be reviewed as the country enters into the second wave of coronavirus.
“It (January 18 date of school reopening) is not sacrosanct. When we decided on that date, it was just a target towards what we were working on. Of course, we are keeping it in view and looking at what is happening in society and then it is supposed to be subject to constant review.
“Even today (Monday) at the PTF meeting, we looked at the rising figures and thought about if we should probably take another look at it. On the January 18 resumption, we are reviewing it, we are going to review it. At the PTF meeting today (Monday) we considered it and tomorrow (today), the ministry is going to take it up,” the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu had said.
Many Nigerians who are not happy with this development took to the micro-blogging platform to express their views as they felt that the federal government and ASUU should do more to make sure that schools are opened instead of closing schools until coronavirus comes down.
