Secondary Schools

The Kaduna state government has okayed the reopening of both public and private secondary schools in the state for in-person academic activities on Monday, February 1, 2021.

According to the statement, only junior secondary school 1 (JSS1), (JSS3) and senior secondary school 3 (SS3) are expected to reopen.

The government arrived at the new resumption date after an extensive appraisal of the second wave of the COVID-19 virus.

Tertiary Institutions

The Kaduna State Government has approved Monday 25th January 2021 as the resumption date for Tertiary Institutions across the State.

This approval came after an Assessment Team had gone round all Tertiary Institutions in Kaduna State to ensure their level of preparedness and plans for reopening are in full compliance with the State COVID-19 preventive protocols and for safe learning environments against the pandemic.

A statement signed by Phoebe Sukai Yayi, Permanent Secretary Kaduna state ministry of Education, directs Managements of all Tertiary Institutions to ensure strict adherence to all the guidelines and protocols put in place by the State Government which includes compulsory wearing of facemasks by students, academic and non-academic staff in all the schools; temperature checks and washing facilities situated at strategic locations, with constant water supply or the use of sanitizers, avoiding overcrowding both in class size and hostel occupancy, and the availability of functional health facilities for isolation of suspected cases.

The state government further directs tertiary institutions to ensure that all the measures which have been assessed and confirmed to be in place are sustained and warn that any lapse will lead to the closure of the erring Institution without notice.

“Resumption by all Tertiary Institutions will be in phases as provided by the Institutions and according to their academic levels and subject to school’s compliance with guidelines in place.

“Unscheduled monitoring visits to schools across the state will be conducted by a Task Force Team to ensure continuous compliance with the Covid-19 guidelines.

“The Kaduna State Ministry of Education further expresses its profound appreciation for the support and cooperation of all stakeholders in ensuring the containment of pandemic
in the State.”

Meanwhile, assessment based on Covid-19 guidelines issued by the State Ministry of health for all other levels of Public and Private Schools (Secondary and Primary) is ongoing and once this is concluded, reported, and approved, a pronouncement will be made accordingly.

Very soon, the resumption dates for PRIMARY and SECONDARY SCHOOLS will be announced. As soon as that happens, we will update this page accordingly.

This is really suspicious… Is no longer a protection but destruction.
I strongly believed that covid19 in Nigeria is political, and that there ways in which many (Government) are benefiting from the pandemic that’s why the remaining States to reopen schools insisted..but is quiet unfair.. Again I personally smell something fishy ..

Why do the government keep lying an claiming to have. Covid_19 patients while it is a false alarm


Covid has come to stay, my advice is that the government should put more effort in ensuring people keep to the guideline on covid but that should not demoralize the educational system. So I plead with the government to fix an early date for resumption. Thank you.


Pls d state gov should try and fixed proper date


Is Kaduna government fighting for the improvement of education of students or collapsing and demolishing the bright feature of upcoming talented students backing up with corona (covid 19)
