SCHOOLS REMAIN CLOSED NATIONWIDE, DISREGARD CONTRARY RUMOURS – MINISTRY OF EDUCATION
The Federal Ministry of Education has called on the public to disregard the fake news making the rounds that the ministry has reopened schools. This was contained in a statement issued by the ministry.
According to the statement which was signed by the Director of Press, Ben Bem Goong, The Ministry’s decision to close schools, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, remains in force. “The ministry has not directed the reopening of any school at any level. The purported press release by the minister to that effect is a clear forgery as it did not emanate from the minister,”
The statement advised the public to disregard all fake stories that appear to be news in the mass media.
