Chief Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, the Minister of State for Education has eventually taken the bull by the horns, rolling out plans to reopen schools in a more concrete manner by presenting to the Senate Committee on Education his ministry's proposed date and guidelines for primary and secondary schools resumption for approval. On presentation, it appeared school resumption plan has been long awaited in the Nigerian Senate as the Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Education, Senator Akon Eyakenyi, heaved a groan, noting that Nigeria is verging on losing a full academic session which will mean an irreparable loss to the nation. Rhetorically, he asked, how could we make up if Nigeria loses one academic session? Senator Akon regretted that there was no arrangements made to teach public school children at home during covid-19 pandemic like their private school counterparts.
The Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, however, confirmed that against all the odds, Oyo state will be reopening schools first for teachers on June 29, 2020 while school children will be resuming on July 6, 2020. As school resumption heaves in sight, everything is beginning to turn around to everyone's delectation.
