August 11th Update: Will School Really Resume in September?
Lately most students have been asking us if it is true that all schools (tertiary institutions) in Nigeria will resume in September 2020?
ANS; THERE’S NO OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT SAYING SCHOOLS WILL RESUME in September.
However, there are strong indications that schools MIGHT resume September or maybe October.
Why do we (Allschool) think so?
- National Universities Commission (NUC) directed all VC’s to ascertain Level of Preparedness for Safe Reopening of Varsities. Some schools like UNILORIN have indicated that they are ready to resume.
- Over 10,000 COVID-19 patients were discharged few days ago. This seems to be a relief.
- In a bid to end the ongoing strike, ASUU said they are ready to resume negotiations with FG.
Just to be clear again; we just assumed that schools might resume September or October 2020. There’s actually no official announcement yet.
We really look forward to such announcement?
How about you? What do you think? DO you also really think schools will resume September/October? Or Are you working already and don’t want to go back to school this year?

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.
