Several misconceptions about the  purported news on school resumption  date come September 7th 2020 have been resolved by FG.

The Federal Government through the Ministry of Education has continued to refute claims that the resumption date for school will be September.

Following the recent video released online which claimed that the Honorable Minister of Education, Dr. Adamu Adamu has announced September 7th to be resumption. This video was actually made some years back which featured the minister but has been misconstrued to be this coming month.

The Ministry of Education, therefore, calls on the general public to disregard the video, as this was the handwork of mischief-makers who were trying to get cheap popularity. The Ministry says that the school resumption date shall be announced through relevant agencies when the necessary investigation has been concluded regarding the safety of all school children.

The government in other words counsels all students to remain calm and avoid misleading information on resumption dates. Dr. Adamu Adamu during one of the PTF meetings had reiterated that the government cannot endanger the lives of school children following the pandemic outbreak.

"We cannot endanger the lives of these children in the name of a school. Necessary measures are to be put on the ground to ensure that their safety remains intact," he said.

We learned that students gathered at the Ministry of Education complex in Abuja to protest the long closure of schools both primary and tertiary institutions. The report from students at the protest revealed that they are losing their patients, especially those who are meant to graduate this year.

While addressing this issue, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba assured the students of government positive feedback on school resumption in no distant time. He says that the government is on top of the situation, thus working with NUC and other agencies in charge to bring an end to the situation.

"I urge our students who have actually exercised a lot of patience and bear with us a little bit more. The rioting needs to stop. There is nothing to riot about. We are in full negotiation with ASUU," the Minister revealed. (emprezblog)

We also gathered that ASUU is ready to end its string with the Federal Government. According to the Minister, they want to ensure a conducive learning environment for students following the aftermath of the COVID 19. Although most Universities have written to the Ministry indicating their readiness to commence academic activities.

In another information, students in JSS3 whose exam has been suspended till further notice may not be taken their exams any longer. Although no tangible reason was giving behind the suspension, a close source believed that their exams do not appear that consequential to the government especially in this period.
