The minister of Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, yesterday announced that the federal Government has directed public, private and secondary schools to resume academic activities on Monday, September 22, 2014.

It would be recalled that the extension in the date of resumption was necessitated in order to prevent school children from the Ebola break out.

The minister stated that preventive measures are in place to ensure this and advised all State Ministry of Education that has not appointed designated Desk Officers on Ebola information should do so urgently before the resumption date.

He urged state governments to support their state Ministries of Education with all necessary funds to ensure effective implementation of the preventive measures.

According to him, “The Federal Ministry of Education will liaise with the Federal Ministry of Health to ensure that appropriate equipment is procured. Those states that have not complied with this agreement should please do so.
