The Federal Ministry of Education has reacted over purported press statement making the rounds that Schools across Nigeria will resume on 20th July, 2020.
The Press Statement quoted Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce team on COVID-19 as raised the hope of the Nigerian students by announcing that Schools will be resumed on Monday, 20th July, 2020.
“The federal government of Nigeria has announced Monday, 20th July the official resumption date for Universities, Polytechnics and other schools”, parts of the statement reads.
However, reacting over the viral press statement, the Education Ministry wants the general public to disregard all unconfirmed news not originating from the Ministry’s Official Media Handles.
According to the ministry, “The Official date for Resumption of Schools Nationwide is yet to be confirmed”.
