Presidency clears air on reopening of schools
The Presidency has made clarifications on school resumption following the gradual relaxation of the lockdown.
President Buhari had ordered a gradual relaxation of the lockdown starting from Monday next week but was silent on the reopening of schools.
However, Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina while featuring on TVC, said schools may re-open for those about to take exams.
Adesina said candidates about to take West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and other examinations may be allowed to go back to school.
“If you look at Germany, they gradually reduced their lockdown by opening the schools for those who have exams.
“Same may apply here as those who are to write WAEC and take examinations may be allowed to resume to take their exams.
“The Presidential Task Force will be the ones to decide on when to re-open,” Adesina said on Tuesday.
