FG gives new update and requirements on schools resumption in Nigeria

Are you seeking for the official resumption date of schools in Nigeria? well you are on the right page, we will keep you informed on the approved or official resumption dates of all schools namely: nursery, primary, secondary schools, universities, polytechnics, college of education and other institutions in Nigeria.

LATEST UPDATE: The Federal Government has reacted to news circulating on the date for resumption of Schools following the ease of lockdown in the country.

Some news outlets had reported that the federal government had fixed July 20 as the date for the official resumption of schools across the country.

But in a statement on Thursday, the Ministry of Education dismissed the report, saying that the purported report did not originate from any of its media handles.

The statement urged Students, Parents and Guardians to disregard all unconfirmed news on the resumption of schools across the country.

It added that the official date for resumption of schools nationwide is yet to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, the federal government had begun disinfection of public schools across the country preparatory to resumption after months of shutdown following the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country.

The ministry has however said for schools to resume academic activities, the school authorities must meet certain conditions which include:

All Institutions must have 
(1) Hand-washing facilities, 
(2) Body temperature checks 
(3) Body disinfectants at all entering points to their major facilities including the gates, hostels, classes, offices, etc. 
(4) The whole premises of each institution must be decontaminated and 
(5) All efforts must be geared toward maintenance of the highest level of hygiene 
(6) Ensure Social and Physical Distancing in class sizes and meeting spaces.”

The minister, however, warned against reopening of schools without the Federal Government’s authorisation.

While we await the directive or official announcement of resumption of schools in Nigeria, you are advised to keep your self engaged with online lectures, do not fall prey to fake news circulating online on the official school resumption date as they are false and did not come from the ministry of education.

We will keep you updated on this page once an official date has been disclosed for schools resumption in Nigeria by the Federal Ministry of Education.

Please remember to stay safe! Feel free to drop your questions and inquiry and we will be glad to keep you informed
