The Ministry of Education says private school teachers are poised to benefit from the Federal Government’s N100 billion COVID-19 intervention fund.
This was made known by the Minister of State for Education Emeka Nwajiuba on Monday whilst addressing the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja.
He expressed satisfaction with the level of compliance with virus prevention protocol by schools that have resumed for exit classes.
The minister said the government was continuing with its engagement with private school teachers to access the N100 billion Central Bank of Nigeria credit support intervention for the healthcare industry.
“We have forwarded the requests that they made to the CBN and Ministry of Trade, Industry and Investment because for us, they are part of the provision the Federal Government has made in relation to SMEs.
“They are the intellectual powerbase of the country,” Nwajiuba stated.
