August 18th UpdateFG replies NANS: We’ll reopen varsities when it’s safe to do so

The Federal Government has assured the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), that all schools in the country, including tertiary institutions, would reopened only when it is safe to do so.

The Chairman of Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 pandemic and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, gave this assurance Monday at the briefing of the Task Force.

NANS had two weeks ago, noted that though the pandemic hit many nations across the globe, Nigeria should take appropriate steps to remedy the situation and let the society run as seamless as possible.

He said: “Today, the Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSCE) examinations commenced all over the country, like in other West African States, and the PTF is happy to note the high level of compliance with the protocols for the re-opening of exit classes.

It is in this light that we appreciate the call by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) for the reopening of tertiary institutions. As a listening government, we wish to state that education is topmost on the priority list and the reopening of our institutions remain critical, within set safety parameters.”

August 13th Update: Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) Announces Resumption Date for First Year Students.

Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) formerly called Anambra State University (ANSU) seems to be the first Government-owned University to announce resumption date for students.

According to the school management, all COOU fresh students are to resume August 13th 2024 while their first semester exams will commence 20th August, 2024.

COOU calling students to resume school gives us hope that Tertiary Institution students will resume this year.

Talking about that, please note that there’s no official notice that schools will resume September 7th. Disregard any news stating otherwise.

We are monitoring the updates on school resumption and will update this page whenever there’s news.

August 11th Update: Will School Really Resume in September?

Lately most students have been asking us if it is true that all schools (tertiary institutions) in Nigeria will resume in September 2024?


However, there are strong indications that schools MIGHT resume September or maybe October.

Why do we ( think so?

  1. National Universities Commission (NUC) directed all VC’s to ascertain Level of Preparedness for Safe Reopening of Varsities. Some schools like UNILORIN have indicated that they are ready to resume.
  2. Over 10,000 COVID-19 patients were discharged few days ago. This seems to be a relief.
  3. In a bid to end the ongoing strike, ASUU said they are ready to resume negotiations with FG.

Just to be clear again; we just assumed that schools might resume September or October 2024. There’s actually no official announcement yet.

We really look forward to such announcement?

How about you? What do you think? DO you also really think schools will resume September/October? Or Are you working already and don’t want to go back to school this year?
