August 2nd Update: NUC Directs Vice Chancellors to Urgently Ascertain Level of Preparedness for Safe Reopening of Varsities

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has directed all Vice Chancellors (VC) to ascertain their level of preparedness for safe reopening of Universities.

This was disclosed in a letter signed by NUC Executive Secretary, Chris J. Maiyaki.

The letter partly reads:

“Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities will please recall that, as part of the measures to contain and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Federal Govemment, through the Federal Ministry of Education, ordered the immediate closure of all schools, including Universities on 23 March, 2020.

“All schools have since remained closed, until the recent decision to allow only Exiting Classes to resume to enable final year students to participate in the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination including other examinations, to be conducted by NECO, NABTEB and NBAIS.

“As Vice-Chancellors are already aware, following the gradual easing of the restrictions as part of the management of COVID-19, there have been several stakeholder consultations as well as meetings with the Honourable Minister of Education with the attendant clamor by concerned citizens for the reopening of Higher Education Institutions (HEIS) and resumption of academic activities.

In the midst of all these, the Federal Ministry of Education had since developed and circulated guidelines for schools and learning facilities, to provide the required support for the safe reopening of schools and resumption of academic activities.

Cognisant however, of the peculiar circumstances and the distinct nature of the University sub-Sector, the National Universities Commission has developed the attached template, to generate data/information on the preparedness of Universities for possible reopening and resumption of academic activities amid the COVID-19 Pandemic.

“The template also provides for data on physical facilities such as infrastructure for Digital Delivery, Lecture Theatres, Halls and Classrooms, Laboratories/Workshops/Studios; and students accommodation.

“The University is also required to indicate the measures/strategies that have been put in place preparatory to a safe and hitch-free reopening of institutions, in readiness for the commencement of full academic activities.

“Such information when generated across the entire sub-sector, will provide the commission with a full picture of the challenges as well as guide policy options by Government.

The image below is a copy of the letter directed to VCs.

To us, this is a good move. This again indicates that all schools will resume soon. Share you thoughts with us in the COMMENT SECTION. And Please share this page.

July 27th Update: Secondary Schools to Reopen August 4th for final year Pupils, WAEC EXAM to Commence August 17th – FG

The Federal Government has said Secondary schools in the country will reopen on August 4, 2020 for pupils in exit classes to sit for their examination.

The government said students will have two weeks to prepare for the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination organised by the West Africa Examination Council.

WAEC exams, the government said will commence on 17th of August, 2020.
The government announced the decision at the end of a virtual consultative meeting between the Federal Ministry of Education, Commissioners of Education of the 36 states, the Nigerian Union of Teachers, (NUT), the proprietors of private schools, and Chief Executives of examination bodies.

In a statement by the Director, Press and Public Relations, FMoE, Ben Goong, said “stakeholders at the meeting agreed that the exit classes should resume immediately after the Sallah break, from the 4th of August, 2020 to enable them prepare for the WAEC examinations scheduled to commence from the 17th of August, 2020.

“The meeting also resolved that a passionate appeal be made to the Federal Government through the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and public spirited Nigerians for assistance to schools across the country to enable them fast track the preparations of safe reopening, as agreed.

“Another meeting is to be convened tomorrow between the Federal Ministry of Education and Chief Executives of examination bodies namely, NECO, NABTEB and NBAIS to harmonise their examination dates, which will be conveyed to stakeholders expeditiously by the Federal Ministry of Education.”

July 25th Update: Lagos schools resume August 4

In accordance with the decision of state governors in the South-West geopolitical zone to reopen schools, primary and secondary schools in Lagos State are set to reopen on August 3, this year.

However, only learners in primary six, junior secondary school 3, and senior secondary school 3 are to resume.

This, it was gathered, followed a meeting held on Thursday in Ikeja with some stakeholders in the sector by officials of the Lagos State Ministry of Education.

During the meeting, the Department of Quality Assurance in the ministry mandated all schools, whether public or private to fill an online assessment form, stating their preparedness to meet conditions stipulated for school reopening by the Federal Ministry of Education.

Each school will later be issued clearance for it to reopen.

Speaking on the development, the Lagos State President of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, NAPPS, Chief Olawale Amusa, said his association had also set up a Quality Assurance Committee to go round schools and assess the readiness of members.

He expressed optimism that most of his members would meet the requirements for reopening schools.

Also, despite the discordant tunes that have greeted the conduct of this year’s WASSCE by the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, South-West states are working on the possibility of partaking in the exam come September.

The decision by the states to partake in the exam is hinged on the need to allow final year secondary school students to be apart of this year’s admission into tertiary Institutions.

Recall that only on Thursday, the Minister of State, Education, Mr. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, said if the Federal Government could not meet up with WAEC’s timeline of conducting WASSCE in September, Nigerian candidates could take the exam in November/ December this year.

July 24th Update: FG, state commissioners, others to meet July 30 on school reopening ― Minister

The Federal Government is to meet with the State Commissioners for Education, National Association of Private School Proprietors and other critical stakeholders, on 30th July 2020, to evaluate the level of preparedness and possibility of reopening schools.

Minister of State for Education, Hon Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, made this known during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 news briefing in Abuja.

The meeting would discuss the level of compliance with the guidelines for reopening of schools earlier released by the Federal Ministry of Education.

He also disclosed that government was working assiduously towards ensuring that the final year students participate in the West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WAEC) which was scheduled to hold from 4th August to 5th September 2020.

Nwajiuba said WAEC has insisted on going ahead with the examination in other four West African countries and that Nigeria would not be left, saying the option of November General Certificate in Examination (GCE) for Nigeria to join earlier being put on the table would not be ideal for the country.

He said the discussion was still on the possibility of shifting Nigerian languages, which are subjects scheduled to hold first before other general papers taken by candidates from all the five West African countries.

He said: “WAEC was unable to wholesomely move the exams but we have also worked out negotiated timeline with WAEC such that what we call peculiar Nigerian subjects which in the language of WAEC are subjects that are only held in Nigeria-Igbo Language, Hausa Language, and Yoruba Language.

“Ghanaians have their own but they are all in the first part of the timetable. We will now work out a domestication module that will take our peculiar subjects behind after we have done generals. This will buy us the time we need for all of us to be able to be at par with the rest of West Africa for the examinations to be written at the same time,” he said.

Goodday to all Nigeria student.. concerning the reopening of schools, to me it’s a big risk… Because I have been reading comments of some people saying we should all resume school, that if we resume school we will know how to tackle this virus case. Now my question is, since you have been at home for months now what help have you render to control the spread of the virus?. Some will think maybe am not a student. I’m a student of Ambrose Alli University. We all know our selves, we all know how Nigeria student behaves. Risking our live… Read more »


Hello allschool.com may I know the source of this report. I’m yet to find anything in relation to this on NUC’s website or leading news platforms hence putting the veracity of this report to question.

Thanks for your immediate response!


All of you saying school should resume fully….is like u don’t really know how dangerous it is…other countries that open school, shut it down immediately when cases rise up back, those are the countries that have good facilities and medical standards to curb the spread ….there is no way higher institutions will open…that means u are opening the country fully….students will travel from states to another, go to markets to get stuffs….every aspect of the economy will start working fully……nigeria institution that we always sit 10 on a bench and still lot of people are going to stand so it… Read more »

Okorodudu Vivian

Even if the government is scared of the spread of the COVID-19 they should allow the final year students in universities to go back to school

Precious Ukpai

The FG should have given the students at least 3 weeks heads up before announcing reopening to give them time to prepare effectively.

Abaniwo Lois

If universities don’t open this year it will just be a waste and backwardness to us all many of us didn’t even write first semester exam before they told us to evacuate school premises I will advise the FG to just open universities soon

In my opinion, I’d say universities shouldn’t reopen till a comprehensible vaccine for this virus is found. Because students wouldn’t adhere to the rules of social distancing. And as thus, an inflation in the spread of the virus. So we stay at home to live than our parents be blaming the government for leading children to their deaths


So universities won’t open now..??


As a jss3 student, am to resume next tomorrow?


What about the JUPEB students? When are we going to write our exams?

Daniel Moses

Thanks be to God almighty let school start please

Chinenye Gabriel

No update on reopening of universities???

Ofonime effiong

Please let school start


What about universities,wen are they going to be opened, universities should even be considered first because they are the ones old enough to adhere to the rules and guidelines

King Jesus boy victor

To God be the glory since finally is now that you have to do it ,
School must start August 🌍


What of in primary schools are they going to resume on August 4th?😑😐


The resumptions of schools is not safe because some schools are over crowded and the disease might spread because some people don’t follow the Covid 19 rules….schools should not resume now till the spread of disease reduces


How can my fellow students say they are happy to head back to school in this trying times. Are you people okay? Do you even know what’s at stake so if you go to school and contract this disease I hope you’ll be happy and not try to contact anyone else with these. Okay so as you’re rushing to write this exam when do you think universities will open to accept you, some of you lack sense but it’s fine we’ll write the exam I hope you pass in flying colors though all A1’s, Ohhh and to the federal government… Read more »
