 The Kogi State Government on Tuesday announced the reopening of schools at all levels, including primary, secondary and tertiary institutions in the state.

The state Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Mr Wemi Jones, who spoke during a press conference on Tuesday in Lokoja, said this would take effect from September 14, 2020.

He said, ‘’You will recall that His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello, directed the closure of all schools from primary to tertiary institutions in the state from March 23, because of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.

‘’Subsequently, upon the directive of the Federal Ministry of Education, exit classes were opened for Primary 6, JSS3 and SS3 in Kogi on August 10, to particularly allow the SS3 classes to prepare and write the WAEC examination.

‘’Therefore, upon further review having had several meetings with relevant stakeholders, His Excellency has directed that all schools in Kogi State should fully reopen on September 14, 2020’’, he said.

 He, however, advised all heads of schools to ensure full compliance with the COVID-19 protocols as set out by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.
