FG UNDER PRESSURE NOT TO REOPEN SCHOOLS UNTIL 2021

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has said it is in support of Federal Government’s decision to stop Senior Secondary School 3 pupils from partaking in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination earlier scheduled to commence on August 4. ASUU advised the government to shut down schools until 2021 to ensure adequate preparations, citing the case in some countries such as Kenya.
Unimaidgist had reported that the Federal Ministry of Education met with officials of the West African Examination Council in Abuja and resolved to announce a new date for the examination. The Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, had also said the government would consult with the four other countries under WAEC to set a new date, while announcing COVID-19 mandatory guidelines for schools which must be kept before July 29.
ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, made the recommendations in an interview with Sunday PUNCH, saying that no reasonable government would take such chances unless parents would be told to sign an undertaking.
