In regard to the earlier circular released on the 19th March 2020 by the Federal Ministry of Education on school closure due to covid-19, the Ministry has released another circular on the 8th May 2020 stating that schools remained closed.
The Federal Ministry of Education has informed the general public that the schools shall remain closed as we closely monitor development on the containment of covid-19.
This is without prejudice of officers on essentials services and other operational exigencies as may be determined by the chief executive of each organisation.
All chief executives and other stakeholder are to ignore fake news on the subject matter in the Social Media as the situation is under constant review and any decision on resumption shall be conveyed through the appropriate channels.
