According to ASUU national president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi who spoke to the news agency noted that the federal government needs to address the challenges in the education sector before it can talk of reopening of schools.

The advice to federal government has caused mix reactions for Nigerian, more especially the students.

"When it comes to public health, it is something that should not be left in the care If one person but the Federal Government must take the lead.”

The ASUU president named the conditions spelled out by NCDC to include the requirement of elements for regular handwashing, provision of face masks, isolations spaces, hands sanitizers, amongst others.

He said many government-owned schools don’t have economic abilities to meet the outlined requirements.

He said, “It is suicidal to reopen schools now if the Federal Government itself could not fulfill the conditions spelled out by the NCDC and the World Health Organisation. The nation will jeopardize innocent children to avoidable risks.” Schools across the country were shut in March to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

Any parent who is in a hurry to send back his or her ward to school now does not really love such child. Our schools are ill equipped to handle the crisis of this pandemic. How many children of the politicians are in Nigerian schools? They will hide their children in good schools abroad and want mass murder for the children of ordinary Nigerians in our useless schools. God will frustrate their plans. No reopening of schools until there is a clear direction on the management or cure of this pandemic.
