The federal government of Nigeria has assured students and the public that schools will resume after June 21, 2020 when interstate movement will be eased.
The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has hinted that schools may reopen in the country after the ban on interstate movement has been lifted on June 21,2020.
We had earlier made this known to everyone on our last publication on schools resumption date in Nigeria, our reliable source from the federal ministry of education revealed that schools will resume after the lockdown of interstate movement is eased.
The minister stated this during a briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja on Monday.
While restating that the government has not published any date for school reopening, he said the ministry will not want to lead Nigerians into danger.
Nwajiuba said, “We want to open when it is safe to do so. We have heard about neighbouring countries that opened and shut. We have heard about cases spiking with children getting into school. Of all the things I will like to do, I will not like to experiment with your children.
“We want a situation where once we are sure it is safe, we can then take them into school.
“I have just finished a meeting with the representatives of WAEC and NABTEB and I understand how that worries our parents at the moment and how anxious our children are to know what next.
“As soon as those in charge of the blockade lift it because there is no way we can open our schools if teachers can’t come. So, we are looking at somewhere after the interstate lockdown is lifted. Because we will need that kind of openness for the children to move.”
The Federal Government had in March shut all schools in the country as part of measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
The good news about school resumption in Nigeria is that the Federal Government may lift the ban placed on interstate movements on June 21, 2020.
This was disclosed by special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on new media, Bashir Ahmad on Thursday via his Twitter handle.
He stated, “Interstate movement may resume on June 21, the National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Dr Dani Aliyu, gave the hint recently, as domestic flights expected to resume on June 21.”

The lockdown on Interstate movement plays a vital role on schools resumption in Nigeria but with the news on the Federal Government to lift Ban on Interstate movement on June 21.
Federal government has began Disinfection of Schools in Six Geopolitical Zones of the Country ahead of Resumption a close source from the Federal ministry of education (FME), disclosed that schools will resume June ending or early July, stating that the FG would not waste funds disinfecting schools across the Six Geopolitical Zones of the Country if resumption won't take effect immediately after the Disinfection exercise.
Another point to consider is that FG Eases Lockdown, Reopens Banks, Worship Centres, like the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire said we monitor situations going on in the country following the Reopening of Banks, Worship Centres and business before schools will be directed to resume with a view to preventing a spike in the infection after reopening of schools across the country.
So, we would be liaising with the federal ministry of education and that of the state in order to ensure we all have a hitch-free exam,” he stressed
