School Resumption Date: Students Beg FG To Reopen Schools
A cross-section of students in Kwara have appealed to the Federal Government to reopen schools despite the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
The students, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in separate interviews in Ilorin on Sunday, expressed their frustration for sitting home over a long period.
NAN reports that the federal government had in March announced the closure of schools, churches, mosques and events centres as well as banning social gathering as part of measures to curtail the spreading pandemic.
Victor Odediran, a student of the Kwara State College of Education, Oro said students were tired of staying at home.
“We are tired of staying at home.
“Government should kindly help us open the schools as done for markets, banks and other offices.
“They should open schools for us for God sake,’’ he said.
