The federal government of Nigeria has announced that secondary schools in the country are to reopen by August 4, 2020.
However, only the exit classes are to reopen according to a statement on Monday by the federal ministry of education on its Twitter handle.
Naija News recalls the federal government had previously disclosed that it was unsafe to open the schools for students to write their West African Examinations Council (WAEC) exams over the fears of further spreading the Coronavirus infection.
However, according to a statement signed and released on Monday by Ben Bem Goong, Director Press and Public Relations of the Federal Ministry of Education, final year students will now be allowed to return to school and write their exams.
The statement also added that WAEC exams will start by the 17th of August, 2020 while another meeting will be held tomorrow (Tuesday) with other examination bodies such as NECO, NABTEB, and others to harmonize their 2020 examination timetable.
