However, students in final year in Secondary Schools were recently made to resume on 4th August 2020, in order to write their West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
The Honorable Commissioner for Tertiary Education Mrs Sa’adatu Modibbo Kawu in her tweet, stated that ”We have been working to ascertain the level of preparedness for reopening by our Tertiary Institutions. Fumigation has commenced, as well as the distribution of hand sanitizers & face masks. I look forward to seeing our students & staff return to School, but only when it is safe to do so”.
While expressing his enthusiasm, a Student from University of Ilorin who replied to the tweet stated that ”Honestly, we can’t wait to resume. Our Government should just try and put the necessary precautions in place for safe reopening of Schools. We pray almighty God free our society from any form of diseases”.171
