The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCT) has said there would be no third term as students resume for the 2020/21 academic session.
Fatima Abdulrahman, the chairperson of the FCT schools resumption committee made the disclosure in Abuja on Thursday, October 8.
According to Daily Trust, she sternly warned private schools not to demand third term fees.
The official stated that schools must adhere to the COVID-19 protocols. She pointed out that the maximum class size should be 25 students per class.
Abdulrahman mandated for schools to have a sick bay where students with high temperature would be kept under the supervision of health personnel until their parents come for them.
According to her:
“Any school that does not comply with the guidelines and an outbreak occurs in the school due to negligence risks closure.”
The officials asked schools to conduct revision and examination to tidy up and end the second term within two weeks.
Meanwhile, following the announcement of the resumption of academic activities in all primary and secondary schools across the country, the federal government has released fresh guidelines that must be strictly adhered to.
Legit.ng reported that the national coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, made this known during a briefing in Abuja on Thursday, October 8.
It would be recalled that schools in the country had been shut for more than four months as part of measures to curb the spread of the novel disease.
