The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has said parents are not forced to send their children back to school, despite the federal government’s directive on reopening of Schools.
Recall, on Monday, the Presidential Task Force (PTF) headed by Boss Mustapha announced the reopening of schools for pupils in Primary 6, JSS 3 and SSS 3 as reported by BlazeNewz.
But Nwajiuba, speaking on Channels Television on Wednesday evening, told parents who are not comfortable with sending their wards to school, to keep them at home.
The Minister, however, allayed the fears of parents and teachers, assuring that adequate measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of everyone.
“We understand the limitations of Nigerians. Most people cannot afford laptops and devices and we know that not all our children have the same access.
“And if there are people who do have this access and who feel confident that their children are ready for these exams, nobody is compelling anybody to go to any school,” Nwajiuba said.
