The federal government has announced the reopening of all schools in Nigeria.
The minister of education, Adamu Adamu, made the announcement during a press briefing on Friday in Abuja.
He advised all institutions to obey and adhere to the guidelines for the reopening of schools, earlier announced by the presidential task force.
He said all unity schools should open by October 12 “while states and private schools will determine their own modalities of reopening.”
Many states including Lagos, Oyo, Kano and Enugu, have since announced dates for the reopnening of schools in their states.
The federal government had ordered the closure of tertiary institutions, secondary and primary schools nationwide following the outbreak of coronavirus in the country in March.
