Plans to meet FG Monday
Nigerian parents, under the aegis of the National Parents Teachers’ Association of Nigeria are seeking clarification from the Ministry of Education after it announced the suspension of West African Senior School Certificate Examination for Nigerian students.
The NAPTAN National President, Alhaji Haruna Danjuma, told PUNCH on Thursday that the association had resolved to meet Adamu by Monday to seek an amicable solution.
He noted that the Minister’s announcement on reversal of school resumption for exiting pupils, brought confusion to parents, adding that they would seek an audience with the government on the matter.
He said, “Surprisingly, we heard from the Federal Ministry of Education that the government has suspended the reopening of schools. This is very confusing; we don’t know what to do. We are waiting for whatever will come after this.
“On our side at NAPTAN, we are planning to go to the ministry and meet with the minister or his representatives to hear from them. It should be on Monday.”
Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu had on Wednesday directed that all federal schools should remain closed until it was safe to reopen them. He also urged state governments that had announced school resumption plans to rescind such.
