The Nigerian Ministry of Education has debunked the speculations in circulation that the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu has directed the reopening of schools.
In a statement by the Ministry’s spokesperson, Ben Goong on Sunday night, he said there has not been any directive by the Ministry of Education to reopen schools as everybody has been ordered to stay at home due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Mr. Gooong advised all parents and guardians not to be misled by fake news but continue to abide by the Government’s rule to tackle the Coronavirus.
