He said academic meeting will be chaired by the minister of education, Adamu Adamu.

The examination body also asked candidates who sat for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination (UTME) to print their results slips.
Meanwhile, the chancellor of the Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu, Osun state, Dr Ramon Adedoyin, has advised the government not to reopen schools, churches, and mosques until a permanent solution is found to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Adedoyin said reopening of schools and religious gatherings without having a cure or vaccine for coronavirus would bring about problems for the country, The Nation reported.
He also noted that there were certain posers to be answered by teachers, school owners, parents as well as those at the helms before the thought of opening schools.
In another report, no date has been fixed yet for reopening of schools, the federal government has said.
The federal government is taking the prevention of a spike in the rate of infection very seriously and is therefore still monitoring situations, The Nation reported.
This was disclosed by the health minister, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, during the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 100th day briefing in Abuja.
Ehanire said: “There is no fixed date on schools’ resumption. The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 is studying the situation, carrying out reviews every two and four weeks to access the situation and judge when it is safe."
According to him, the federal government is taking into consideration the balance between safety and preventing disease explosion, and the opening of schools. He called on learning institutions to embrace the option of online training.
