The government of the state of Kogi has ordered the reopening of elementary, secondary and tertiary schools on September 14, 2020.
State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology Mr Wemi Jones, who made the announcement in Lokoja on Tuesday, said the state government had made a decision after a series of interactions with relevant stakeholders and an assessment of both private and public schools in the state to determine their readiness and security for schools to reopen from the COVID-19 break.
Mr. Jones noted that the department will review the state’s academic calendar as appropriate to reflect on the new development. The details will be worked out in due course before the resumption and communicated to the relevant stakeholders. “
“However, we encourage all relevant educational stakeholders such as ANCOPSS, ASSUS, SUBEB, NAPPS, university leaders in Kogi State, NUT, STETSCOM and all other stakeholders to contact us at the ministry for further clarification.”
“We are informing the general public, parents, guardians and principals alike that we care deeply about the health and safety of our learners in Kogi State.
“So the state government will stop at nothing to make sure our learners are in good shape with the Covid-19 pandemic and other diseases or health problems.”
