UPDATED: Resumption Date For Kaduna Schools Remains Unchanged – Official

The Kaduna State government on Tuesday refuted reports of “indefinite” suspension of resumption of academic activities in schools across the state.
Shehu Muhammad, the Commissioner for Education, in a statement issued in Kaduna, described the information as fake news.

”The attention of the Kaduna State Ministry of Education has been drawn to a fake news report in circulation, alleging that the government has suspended the resumption of schools across the state indefinitely.
“The purported report attributed to Nasir El-Rufai declares that the governor made the declaration while addressing a stakeholders’ meeting on Monday.
“That the resumption is suspended due to the ongoing aggressive military operation against bandits in most parts of the state.
“The Ministry of Education wishes to inform the public that the information is false and lacks any basis as the governor was neither in a meeting with stakeholders, nor made any disclosure of such nature to anyone,” Mr Muhammad said.

He recalled that the ministry had in a statement on July 15, announced that schools would be closed for three weeks beginning from July 16.
This, he explained, was to enable the state to review the 2020/2021 Academic Calendar so that normal school activities could continue afterward.
“The state’s stance on that has not changed. In view of the above, the Ministry of Education is urging the public to disregard the fake news report.
“The ministry is also warning those behind this heinous act of misinforming the public, to desist from it, or be prepared to face the wrath of the law,” the commissioner said.
