Whiles Ghanaian final year SHS students are back to school in preparation to write their final WAEC exams, their Nigerian counterparts will not according to the Nigerian Federal Government.
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, who disclosed this to State House Correspondents on Wednesday after the week’s virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, also said there is no date for school resumption yet till further notice.
He said he would prefer Nigerian students to lose an academic year to expose them to dangers.
Adamu said that Nigerian schools will not reopen any time soon until it was safe to do so because of the ongoing pandemic.
As a reminder, the federal government of Nigeria is composed of three distinct branches: legislative, executive, and judicial, whose powers are vested by the Constitution of Nigeria in the National Assembly, the President, and the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, respectively.
