Onyebuchi-ChukwuFollowing the progress made in the anti-Ebola campaign, indications emerged yesterday that public and private schools may be allowed to reopen as from middle of this month.

Health Minister, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu broke the news to State House correspondents at the end of the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja.

At the briefing were the Ministers of Information, Labaran Maku, Transport, Umar Idris, National Planning, Abubakar Suleiman and Power (State), Mohammed Wakil.

The Federal Government had last month postponed the resumption date of all schools till October 13, following outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease.

Prof. Chukwu said the expert opinion now, with the strong containment measures put in place by the government, is that schools can open earlier than the October 13 date.

The new resumption date, he added, will be announced by the Minister of Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, after meeting with Commissioners for Education and other stakeholders, who were involved in fixing the earlier resumption date.

  1. Why the hurry? is education more important than health and life? Everyday we hear new stories and they are talking about releasing children to go and play together in schools. except if there won’t be break periods and teachers have to be stationed in each class in order to organize the little ones. my take is that only SS3 should be allowed to go back now Since they are preparing for external exam and can take care of themselves. please these ministers should consider a lot of things before reopening schools. remember it’s a little boy of two yrs that this Ebola thing started from.
