An aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, Tolu Ogunlesi, has debunked a fixed date rumor for school reopening across the nation.
Recall that schools across the country have been on shutdown since coronavirus outbreak.
Ogunlesi however wrote on his Twitter handle:
“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.
