COVID 19: Disregard November reopening date for schools, FG tells parents, students



The Federal Government yesterday advised parents, guardians and students to disregard the news being circulated that schools would reopen in November 2020, following the closure of schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a press release on the Federal Ministry of Education’s letterhead, supposedly bearing the signature of the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, emanated from nowhere, ordering the closure of schools till November.

But in a statement made available to newsmen yesterday in Abuja, the Director, Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Education, Mr Ben Gong, said t press release was fake and was aimed at misleading the public. “He Federal Ministry of Education has disowned a press release circulating on multiple social media platforms, insinuating that schools will reopen in November 2020, describing the release as the handiwork of an illiterate who, going by the content of his release, also appears to be mentally deranged.

“The ministry is asking parents, students and the general public to disregard the release in its entirety, adding that there is no iota of truth about the release. Efforts are on to track the author, and if found to be a normal human being, he or she will be prosecuted. For now, everything about the release points to a mentally deranged.
