The pressure and aim to resume school from parents and students is becoming uncontrollable according to The Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba
The minister stated
“The Ministry is indeed under intense pressure to reopen schools but will never succumb to such pressure until the infection curve begins to flatten.”
“The Ministry of Education reaffirms its commitment to the safety of the Nigerian children and would, therefore, not do anything to compromise their safety. The Federal Government is aware of the damages coronavirus has caused to the lives of people and economies globally, including Nigeria. We will, therefore, not compromise an inch in this regard, no matter the blackmail”.
“The Honourable Minister of State and indeed the Ministry is also of the belief that no child should die of COVID -19 due to schools being reopened at the wrong time and therefore, will resist all pressure to do so.”
