EBOLA: FG sets October 13 resumption date for schools
The resumption of both public and private primary and
secondary schools in the country has been postponed to
October 13, 2014, the federal government said on Tuesday.
Minister of Education, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, stated this
when he briefed journalists after meeting with States
Commissioners of Education, on the risk posed by the dreaded
Ebola virus disease in the education sector.
The Minister said the change in the resumption date would
ensure adequate preventive measures are put in place before
the students report back to school.
