Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu has taken a U-turn on the issue of reopening schools in the country.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after the virtual meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in Abuja on Wednesday, he added that Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) will not determine when schools will reopen.

He further explained that final year students will no longer be allowed to return to school contrary to what had earlier been believed as he would prefer that Nigerian students lose an academic year than to expose them to dangers.

He appealed to States that have announced the resumption of school in their states to reconsider their position so as not to jeopardize the lives of the students, adding, “It is not safe to reopen schools now.”


  1. Confuse government, they should look for a way to make all these students not to forget what they have been taught in the school by providing tablets for all the SS 3 andJSS 3 students and there teachers, therefore, there will be an online lesson for them.

  2. This is one minister that have no value for education. The minister of state education brought out guidelines and modalities on how schools should reopen and all exams conducted. But Adamu as Adamu jettisoned everything to show us, he is the boss. Can this Adamu assure us that coronavirus will go anytime soon to warrant our children missing a whole calender year. Adamu na Adamu
