An aid to President Muhammadu Buhari, Tolu Ogunlesi, has debunked rumours of a fixed date for the reopening of schools across the country.
Recall that since the outbreak of coronavirus, schools all over the country have been on shutdown.
However, Ogunlesi on his Twitter handle wrote: “The news circulating about the fixing of a date for schools’ resumption is fabricated / fake.
“SGF’s words: “The PTF wishes to inform Nigerians that the Federal Ministry of Education WILL ROLL OUT MEASURES TO BE PUT IN PLACE for safe re-opening of our schools.”
“NO dates YET.”
The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, speaking yesterday during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19’s briefing, specifically denied that schools will reopen on June 8.
