The Ministry of Education has debunked reports claiming that schools will reopen in November.
Describing the report as ‘fake and misleading’, the Director, Press and Public Relations of the ministry, Ben Bem Goong, said such statement did not emanate from the ministry.
He noted that plans were already on by the Federal Government in collaboration with the state governments to explore the possibility of online learning to bridge the gap.
“The release as the handiwork of an illiterate, who, going by the content of his release, also appears to be mental.”
“The ministry is asking parents, students and the general public to disregard the release in its entirety. There is no iota of truth about the release.
“Curiously, the letter is on a fake letterhead, fake information with dubious content to mislead the public. The ministry will no longer take such information for granted especially when it posses the capacity to mislead a large number of innocent Nigerians.”
