Private schools 100 per cent ready for resumption – NAPPS tells FG 

Must read

The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) has assured the Federal Government of the readiness of private schools under its fold to resume for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and other terminal examinations.

The association’s clamour for resumption follows the withdrawal of Nigeria’s participation in the sub-regional examination by the Federal Government over safety reasons Wednesday last week.

National President of the association, Chief Yomi Otubela said at a press conference held virtually on Monday that the group had prepared its members for resumption in line with the protocols set by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

He said: “I can vouch for our members that have gone through safety measure in their schools. We are over 100 per cent ready for transitional classes to resume.

“NAPPS, as a responsive and responsible association, has shown its readiness to ensure the safe phased reopening of schools for SS3 and SS3 students in private schools in the country by ensuring member schools strictly adhere to the safety protocols recommended by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the school environment.

“Even though we appreciate the safety concerns of the Federal Government, private schools are fully prepared for safe reopening of schools with investment already made to procure safety equipment as advised by the NCDC to ensure the safe reopening of schools nationwide.”
