The Federal Government has put on hold the planned resumption of federal schools.

It has also stopped students from participating in the West African Senior School Certificate Examinations earlier scheduled for August 4 to September 5.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, disclosed this to State House Correspondents at the end of a meeting of the Federal Executive Council presided over by the President Muhammadu Buhari.

The minister said federal schools would remain closed until it is safe to reopen them.

He also urged state governments that have announced school resumption plans to rescind such.

Adamu stated that the West African Examinations Council could not determine the resumption date of schools for Nigeria.

He said he would prefer that Nigerian students lose an academic year than to expose them to heath dangers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

  1. The federal government should allow the students to participate in the forthcoming WASSCE 2020. What I know most is that your children didn’t attend public schools like other citizens that can’t put their children in private schools like yours. Abeg allow the masses children to participate in the WASSCE 2020, no weapon of COVID-19 can come against them in Christ Jesus because I know they are attending churches, mosques, markets with the laid down guidelines and precautions against coronavirus diseases in their various communities. The government should open schools for our children. Go to Taiwan and learn how they are fighting against this deadly diseases.
