1 min


About 78 privately-owned universities are insisting that they are ready for resumption, FG says.

The Minister of State for Education, Mr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, confirmed this during the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday in Abuja.

He said even though negotiations are still ongoing, no date has been fixed yet for full schools’ resumption.

The minister, however, expressed optimism that the date for resumption was “around the corner”, adding, that “we are not going to be brandishing dates.”

He disclosed that while 78 private institutions were ready to reopen, the response from government-owned universities was still “50-50”.
