Rivers State Governor Nyseom Wike on Tuesday gave an approval for schools to re-open for academic activities in Rivers state.
The approval was contained in a statement issued by the State’s Commissioner for Education, Prof Kaniye Ebeku.
The re-opening, however, is for a limited purpose “of allowing candidates in exit classes to revise with their teachers in preparation to write their exit examinations.”
“Accordingly, all affected teachers and candidates in both public and private schools are hereby directed to return to school with effect from Wednesday 5th August, 2020,” the statement added.
“All responsible officers should please ensure the observance of extant COVID-19 Protocols in their schools.”
The federal government had earlier approved the re-opening of schools across the country to allow exit students sit for exams amid the coronavirus pandemic.
