Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that students in Lagos state might soon resume academic activities as the state government on Thursday, June 4, said the decision to reopen schools would be taken in two weeks.
The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, made the disclosure during a press briefing.
He said the decision on the reopening of schools would be taken after a meeting is held with stakeholders in the education sector.
Legit.ng gathered that Sanwo-Olu pointed out that the ministry of education and Lagos state safety commission would both be involved in the decision on the reopening of schools.
In another post, Legit.ng reported that the Nigerian government had dismissed a report which claimed that the federal ministry of education announced July 20 as the date for the official resumption of schools across the country.
The ministry of education in a statement on Thursday, evening, June 4, said the purported report did not originate from any of its media handles.
According to the ministry, the official date for resumption of schools nationwide is yet to be confirmed. The federal government had shut schools across the country following the outbreak of COVID-19.
