The Federal Government on Friday gave the go-ahead to all Unity Schools in Nigeria to throw open their gates for resumption of academic activities with effect from October 12.
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, handed down the directive at a press conference in Abuja.
He said, “We have consulted widely with all stakeholders in the education sector. Our eyes and ears are opened to the international media.
“I’m glad to report that there has not been any single case of COVID-19 in all Unity Schools. No single fatality among the students.
“We have come to the conclusion that we have to review our decisions. After consultation with PTF, we have resolved that our Unity Schools be opened on October 12, 2020.”
