The Nigerian government has ordered the reopening of all schools in the country. Education Minister Adamu Adamu made the announcement on Friday morning.
The minister’s spokesperson Bem Goong clarified to bluebloodz.com that post-primary schools owned by the federal government – locally known as unity schools – would reopen on 12 October.
State and private schools will determine their own modalities of reopening, according to Mr Goong.
He said the bodies regulating the various tertiary institutions including universities, colleges and polytechnic in the country will come up with their own resumption schedules after putting in place structures for adherence to the Covid-19 guidelines.
Some states in the country have since reopened primary and secondary schools last month.
