The Federal Ministry of Education has appealed to Nigerians to ignore reports in circulation that claim the Education Minister, Adamu Adamu, has directed the reopening of schools.
The spokesperson of the ministry, Ben Gooong, in a statement on Sunday night, said there was no such directive from the minister because everyone had been instructed to work from home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Mr Gooong said parents and guardians must not be misled by fake news but should continue to abide by the government’s regulations to tackle the ravaging pandemic.
“On the issue of reopening of schools, the ministry has not directed the reopening of any school at any level,” he said.
He said the purported press release alleged to have been issued by the minister that schools should reopen, is a clear case of forgery as it did not emanate from the minister.
“Parents, students and the general public are advised to please disregard the fake release. There is also another story making the rounds that the Federal Government has blamed the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities on vice-chancellors. At no time did any Federal Government official make that kind of statement,” he said.
