Jss3, Ss2 To resume September 21

The Federal Government  of Nigeria has ordered closure of all schools (both basic and tertiary institutions) in the country to outside academic activities indefinitely and all students were ordered to go home, as no school’s health facility will be responsible for the treatment of students during the period.

In the false viral news circulating on the internet, it made it known that the Federal Government of Nigeria has given order that all universities and polythecnics (both private and public), are to resume back to their academic activities on the 1st of June, irrespective of what happens concerning the global pandemic outbreak spreading all over the world.

However, the federal government, through it Federal Ministry of Education has given clarification to the viral news, calling it a “fake news”.

TheMinistry of Education reacting to this news on Twitter said that, “There is currently no confirmed date on the resumption of schools Nationwide. These are purported news articles to dissuade the public”

As made known by the ministry of education, the news on the resumption of tertiary institutions is fake news and it should be disregarded.

Nigerians are urged to always neglect fake news especially at this period of time,as most bloggers or publishers don’t confirm informations from reliable sources before publishing it on their blogs, thereby misleading the public.

Also, there is no specific date yet for the resumption of schools Nationwide, as this will be communicated by the Federal Government, when schools are expected to resume and all students are expected to be with their parents.

Always visit newspaedia for reliable information so you wouldn’t be misguided.

Let the federal government try to do something about it, especially ministry of education.secondly they are some graduate who are jobless and are try to do one something or the other but due to this covid-19,they cannot earn a living.FG try to do something before all the state turn to something else.

  16. I no what FG government is doing because they send their children abroad to study and that is why they suffering us and went these pandemic to go in abroad b4 reopened a schools

  17. pls sir help us we are tired of staying at home, and the online learning that’s going on now is not everyone that have access to it I mean we are already frustrated enough and our exams are coming up pls sir let’s go back to school everyone we be very careful of what to do now and pls sir you can help to guide us on what to do if we eventually go back to school and it will make our parents happy and we too pls sir help us before everyone losses interest in school.

  20. pls mr, Adamu Adamu we are very tired of the coronal virus pandemic and we would want school to open fully on first of june ooo we are very tired sir.

  21. We are tired of this lockdown of a thing wr know our govt are trying their possible best to fighyy dis pandemic but sir time is not by our side

  22. “Too many cooks spoil the broth” schools should be open, let government provide sanitizers and all other necessary things all over including private working places because of the high cost of those things, if such is done our country would get ease of such problems and so on…………

  23. Adamu Adamu or what your name is called. If you like say we should stay at home Nigerians will survive but remember whatever you do to the foot the head is still affected! You guys have turned the lives of Nigerians to politics isn’t it? While we are battling corona virus you guys did not postpone primary election in Edo state till further notice! But you are postponing school activities. While you all told us to lock down, you guys were going to the office shey? While you were enforcing nosemacks Buhari himself did not wear and he wasn’t harassed. Whatever you guys do to us negatively must surely bounce back to all those children of yours.

  24. I reserved my comment. Bt to be sincerely all dose student sayin dat they are tired of staying at home they are the most unseriouce onec and they dont want to help there parent to do some work at home. At did been government did not closed school thesame groups of students will complain that the federal government are so wickid for not closing schools while other countries have closed there own. So pleace my advice here is that we should appreciate every effort that government at making toword her citizens. Thanks

  25. People know that the corona thing in Nigeria is just scam…NCDC never responded to a call made to them..
    They only impose states to generate numbers for them and they keep squandering money..
    The market is open and you think if there is corona all won’t contact..who are we deceiving..
    You guys the FG hold meeting and do all sort of things and yet we still stay at home..
    You kids are all studying oversees and the ones here are not your concern..
    This country is so corrupt that nobody can do anything..
    Since you people want to play hide I seek with God/Allah..don’t fail to understand that God/Allah is the only salvation..
    Open schools, churches,mosques and markets…
    People are dying of hunger..
    I have said my peace.

  26. Is it not an Apoly that our leaders are making money with this so called pandemic? They’re are the one corrupting this country, we believe that this Ailment is real but is not here in Nigeria, they’re working hand in hand with NCDCs to provide numbers of confirm cases of covid19(Audio case).
    Pleas Mr. Adamu, with due respect sir, we are tired of staying at home, i beg of you to reopen the schools. Before he start calling us lazy youths, thank you for your understanding and have a nice day sir….

  27. How I wish the coro destroy all this unfaithful and injustice government and there Senate….. now ur stupidness of letting God out of this issue because of your own selfish reason, as it resolved the problem. Please government or whatever you call yourself, as for me I know you are all source of crime and fraud. Please don’t disturb the future of the children.

  28. Pls sir adamu
    We plead you
    We beg you
    We deeply beg u to announce
    Our resumption we are all tired of staying home with doing nothing
    Is as if we students are put in jail .
    No where to go talkless of moving around
    We beg .u
    We help us with that
    We don’t care of the Coronavirus
    Because I’m confused where u are seeing more cases
    Even if is just one or two cases u people are seeing it will be better
    But it something like 200 upward
    How possible
    Pls we beg help us open it in June THANKS ALOT

  29. Please FG,we all know that this corona stuff is not in nigeria,even if its in nigeria its not much as u re saying it,we all know wat u need is money,nobody is asking u not to make ur money but please dont use urs to delay ours,please am begging you,announce the real resumption date and let our mind be at rest please🙏🙏🙏you can continue making your money by employing doctors in the university with all techniques needed,the country is even going to love u like dat nd dey re going to believe that truly there’s corona virus nd u we keep receiving the moneys you re receiving,i will be waiting for a response about the resumption date from our dear FG

  30. FG, we know that u guys are trying alot to ensure everyone is safe , most especially student by closing schools ,but it will be of advantage if schools are been open and strictly ensure safety measures

  31. Am tired of staying at home,pls let us résumé school,because some of thé student with low understanding Will go back to 0% why aime on test have high leave of understanding Will go back to 83%,sir pit us,

  32. It’s a pity i’m seeing the whole reactions from many students in a different dimension.
    If you claim to be a student-university student, it is expected that your reaction should be expressed in error free, simple English language. It’s an eyesore to see a semi graduate expressing his/her thought with SIC words consistently.
    In support anyway, students need to go back to school without delay mr MINISTER FOR EDUCATION.

  33. Please sir, the student in some of us is remaining 5%. Will u allow it to go down to 3%? Please let’s resume next month xo that we can boost up the student in us, and graduate at the proper year.

  34. Sir, am using this opportunity to say these out here. Were are nt a goats or hens that would be in a garden 4 a long time and keep muting like that. You are wasting our time without doing anything. We can’t be sitting down at home busy doing nothing. Okay, fine. If we keep sitting down at home,what are we going to do with our fees? Especially our hostel dues. So, our sitting down home is meaningless. Like you are wasting it. And we have a lots of thing to do in our lives. Pls and pls SIR. Let’s hear the date we’re gonna resume. We’ve tired staying at home, let’s get back to school. Thanks

  35. pls sir, Honestly we are tired of staying at home doing nothing,pls reopen school so that we can continue or studies pls sir

  36. Sir this lockdown is really on our neck as students. Online platform is good for remote learning, but fairly all students will participate because of Its nature.I enjoy contact learning because it is interactive.

    The nursery/primary children are all dead of knowledge what was learnt is gone,are future leaders are lacking behind.

    Sir I’m tired of this lockdown let the school resume please and let’s continue our normal classroom activities. And let the government impose control measures in all schools.

  37. Sir resuming school is gud but wat has to dome is simply for d ncdc to fumigate every where in d school nd provide ur with d sanitizers Nd other preventive materials

  38. Pls. Sir we tired of staying at home and because of that many student who were brilliant students are becoming ignorant. Pls do something

  39. I as a person know that the virus is definitely in Nigeria. But the only problem is that it is not up to the amount they are calling. It seems they have turned it into a political thing. If this is so, please I beg you with whatever you hold dear consider students. Thanks a lot.

  40. plz sir we d student of Nigeria are tired of staying at home ad doing nothing ..
    this lockdown is much to us yes we know dat it is for our own good you d government are doing it for buh sir we are hoping u could at least free us ad send us bk to skul so as to be able to finish our academic session dis year ..
    we can adapt to d use of nose mask ad gloves so as to protect our selves from d virus ……ad sir u d government ad Mr president made mention of E-learning sir is not every one nor every skul dat can adapt to dis new features of learning…..
    plz sir try ad sympathize with us d student d more we stay at home d more we lose interesting in learing ….plz l humble beg dat d government should at least give us a specific date for skul resumption. ..
    Thank u sir ad may God help u d government ad Mr president ad as well as us d citizen in dis fight for covid 19.

  41. Pls FG, school resumption is what we beseech u of.
    we are very tired of staying at home, we beg of u to hv a considerable thought on school resumption.
    covid 19 will surely return 2 where it comes from in d miraculous name of JESUS CHRIST (amen).
    pls do d needful,

  42. Am pleading with Nigerian government that they stop playing politice with pandemic this of a thing pls open all schools .

  43. To Mr Adamu I will bring my own idea of allowed student to resume for a week and now text them to know maybe is true that they were affected and more over this so call covid 19 did not affect any poor people why it is that is affecting the upper and the big man? Pls stop wasting our time and also think of private teachers are u going to pay them salary

  44. Sir,
    Even though COVID-19 is still growing and didn’t reach its peak. Meanwhile, we still have to wait home for the pandemic to be contained, curbed, curtailed and cushioned otherwise its will spread to all nooks and crannies.

  45. Pls Mr adamu, we are tired of this bad pandemic dat is happening in this our country. I believe in God dat every thing will still come to and end. Sir we are tired of seating at home pls release us, we want to go back to school. Don’t ignore our comment is not easy to stay at home.

  46. I DON’T blame you governments, because your children DON’T study here in Nigeria, that’s why you governments won’t take quick actions. You said social distancing and during the burial of the Late chief of staff, we all saw the numbers of people who were present, and you said the man died of this so called Covid-19. Fine you say people died of it and still we DON’T see their burials, we see empty begs at the isolation center when ever its been shown on TV, pls what’s the meaning of all this nonsense, so you want to tell us that its only the chief of staff that has been buried, out of those that died from the virus? Pls DON’T fool us. Let we all students return back to school and impose a compulsory use of face mask, regular use of alcoholic based hand sanitizer and other necessary precautions. Pls are all these things hard for you to do if not for the money you all are benefiting from this pandemic. May the Good God judge you all

  47. FG pls open schools ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  48. Please FG these covid19 is really creating serious problem to we the student honestly, staying at home for a very long period of time without knowing when the so callled pandemic will be over, really unfair, look at some of us that wrote jamb, we all are seriously waiting for the post jamb to write and get to school and all these virus of a thing begin to arise to bad, you all knows the right thing to do, since you know how to fix date for closure i think you also should fix a date for the school to resume please, we have really studied hard and even tired of reading, please help all the student are home sick, we need your say please our noble government, if only you can even see my comment. Thanks

  57. with all due respect sir,would you please mind to allow schools resume in Nigeria? because staying at home is not what I can easily cope with,I felt dull ,sleepy always . we shall be very happy if our request of resumption is put in to consideration as such, as far as doing away with Covid-19 is not an easy task, I suggest you should allow schools resume while the health cares provide strong chemical to be used by students when in school premises so we do not miss our target for the betterment of tomorrow.

  71. Please, my question is can the FG see our comments? My situation right now is bad because of this online exams, I really want the FG to do something about it

  72. My own problem is that my school is saying we should write online exams which is not fair to us. Final year students of Bowen university did their online exams and they said it was terrible. Please Sir the way you ordered all schools to be closed please order all schools not to write this online exams, it’s just not right to us and the school rules on this online exams is too much. The timetable is out already, the exams is first of June, I’ve been trying to contact the FG through comment and email but it wasn’t helpful at all. Please pity us, Thanks.

  73. I know the government is looking out for students but I would suggest schools resume only if the rule of use of face masks and gloves accompanied with hand sanitizers are strictly followed and obeyed

  74. I know the government is looking out for students but I would suggest schools resume only if the rule of use of face masks and gloves accompanied with hand sanitizers are strictly followed

  75. Please, you are wasting our precious time at home doing nothing.We are tired of staying at home. There brains as been total Lockdown

  76. FG should be plsd creat a special control measure for schools. This stay at home is just waisting of childrens’ time.

  77. Whatever decisions our leaders are making now,they should please remember that time is not on anyone’s side.Remember this stay at home thing also has its disadvantages.The academic session for this year is gradually running.Mr Adamu this pandemic might stay with us for a long time to come who knows so why let it put things to a standstill and keep controlling us?We can as well resume and continue our school activities and still be conscious of the virus.With enough warnings and guidelines I’m sure students will be very much careful with things they do now.I’m sure no one will want to die.Honestly sir we are tired of staying at home and I think(God forbid) if we continue like this for a long time many students will lose interest in school activities.Even as it is the online class will not help matters cos’ not everyone has access to it.Going back to school is the best.We’re frustrated already enough sir pls just announce a date for resumption so that everyone will have something to look forward to.Thank you.

  78. I strongly believe that these pandemic in nigeria is now a political stuff…but sir pls reopen schools again pls …thanks sir

  79. advisevily to you minister of education adamu adamu is better to stay and make decision for resume of school in nigeria totally covid 19 is fake in nigeria so we don’t like this king of nonses we are waiting for resuming date immediatly
