Ebonyi: Primary, secondary schools now to open 18th January

The Ebonyi State Government, on Saturday, directed all public and private schools in the state to resume classes on 18th January, 2021.

But higher institutions would still open for academic activities on the 4th January as earlier announced.

On this note, the 4th January as earlier pronounced as resumption date for both primary, secondary Schools would no longer be effective.

The commissioner for education in the state, Dr Onyebuchi Chima, stated this in Abakiliki.

Dr Chima noted that the shift in date of resumption for Primary and secondary schools was in accordance with the directives of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

“That all public, private and mission Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools in Ebonyi State shall resume on Monday 18th January 2021 instead of 4th January as earlier scheduled.

“Again, in order to ensure the return of students to full academic activities, especially as Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) had called off its nine months industrial strike on the 24th December 2020, all Ebonyi State Colleges and University shall resume on Monday 4th January 2021 on condition of strict observation of NCDC Protocols on COVID-19 by all staff and students,” he said.
