No plans to reopen schools yet – Kano Govt

Must read

The Kano State Government has dismissed reports claiming that it was considering the reopening of its schools.

The reports had claimed that government has set up a committee to consider the reopening of the schools closed down after the breakout of the Coronvirus pandemic.

But the state’s education ministry, in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary, Malam Aliyu Yusuf, described the report as “fake news”.

According to him, the story is not true and is a clear misrepresentation of the actual situation on ground.

“Kano State, like other states, received a document from the Federal Ministry of Education containing proposed guidelines to be put in place whenever it is appropriate to re-open schools, which we were asked to review and give our input.

“It was in the course of the review of the documents that the Ministry of Education constituted an Ad-hoc Committee to undertake the assignment. Its input will be transmitted back to the federal education ministry.

“The ministry also wishes to debunk a widely circulated rumour that a directive was issued to private schools to suspend online lessons for their students.

“This news is equally untrue as even the state government is conducting similar programmes through radio and television stations,” he said.
