EDUCATION: Nigerian Govt Sends Message To Parents As Schools Set To Reopen


The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has disclosed that parents are not forced to send their children back to school, even though the federal government approved reopening for graduating students.

Recall Lifestylegist earlier reported that, pupils in Primary 6, JSS 3 and SSS 3 have been asked to return to classes, so they can prepare to graduate.

Meanwhile, the minister while speaking on Channels Television on Wednesday evening, said parents who are not comfortable with sending their wards back, to keep them at home.

The Minister however, assured adequate measures have been put in place to ensure the safety for both the teachers and students.

He said,

“We understand the limitations of Nigerians. Most people cannot afford laptops and devices and we know that not all our children have the same access.

“And if there are people who do have this access and who feel confident that their children are ready for these exams, nobody is compelling anybody to go to any school."
