The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has said schools may revive in Nigeria, when the prohibition on interstate travel has been lifted.

Nwajiuba expressed this during the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 day by day preparation in Abuja on Monday.

Schools were closed down across the country in March, to abridge the episode of coronavirus in the nation.

The Minister likewise demanded that the central government was not ready to take risks with the strength of kids.

“As soon as those in charge of the blockade lift it because there is no way we can open our schools if teachers can’t come.

We are looking at somewhere after the interstate lockdown is lifted.

“Because we will need that kind of openness for the children to move,” Nwajiuba said. Nigeria currently has 12,486 confirmed cases of COVID-19 as at Monday.
