The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has said parents are not under compulsion to send their children back to school, despite the federal government’s decision to reopen learning institutions.
Pupils in Primary 6, JSS 3 and SSS 3 have been asked to return to classes, so they can prepare to graduate.
But the Minster, speaking on Channels Television on Wednesday evening, told parents who are not okay with sending their children back, to keep them at home.
Nwajiuba, however, reduced the fears of parents and teachers, assuring that adequate measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of everyone.
“We understand the limitations of Nigerians. Most people cannot afford laptops and devices and we know that not all our children have the same access.
“And if there are people who do have this access and who feel confident that their children are ready for these exams, nobody is compelling anybody to go to any school,” the minister said.
