Alot of students have been so anxious concerning the resumption dates for all school, most of them went ahead believing what the saw on social media platforms and other websites concerning what the Federal Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu spoke on reopening of all schools both secondary and tertiary institutions on the 7th of September, 2020.

It has been confirmed that the information circulating on social media platforms and other websites concerning the resumption date (7th September, 2020) has been regarded to be false ,as the Federal Government of Nigeria has not said anything concerning the resumption of all schools (Secondary and tertiary institutions) nationwide.

The Federal Government of Nigeria during a meeting with educational stakeholders last month July, 2020 made an announcement that all secondary schools nationwide should resume on the 4th of August, 2020 for exit classes only and not universities.

This decision was taken to level up the conduct of the WASSCE 2020 examinations which is ongoing now for SSS3 students only.

The Federal Government of Nigeria and other educational stakeholders in a meeting, has also met with the administrators of Joint Admission And Matriculation Board (JAMB), to reschedule the earlier announced date for conducts of admission processes for 2020/2021 sessions.

The meeting was successful as the board fixed September 7th ,2020 for the conducts of all tertiary institutions POST-UTME/SCREENING exercise.

Due to this above, alot of university students, parents ,friends and relations misused the date ( 7th ,September, 2020) to be the resumption date for all schools (secondary and tertiary institutions) which is not supposed to be so.

The Federal Government has reiterated it’s ambitions to resume schools whenever the institutional ecosystems are safe.

Lastly, the negotiations between the leadership of ASUU and FGN to suspend the ongoing industrial strike action has not been met to be accepted.
