Yiu may have been asking the federal government when schools will be allowed to resume in Nigeria.
The question is hanging in the air and may not be answered now due to the present coronavirus pandemic.
However, the federal Government has given the good-ahead for schools to write the third term exam.
According to Emeka Nwajiuba, the Minister of Education, schools who are running an international curriculum, will be allowed to write their third term exams online.
The Education Minister stated this while speaking on Monday during the daily briefing of the Presidential TaskForce on COVID-19.
Nwajiuba said, this had become necessary, as there were private schools licenced to run foreign curriculum, especially for children of expatriates and diplomats.
“Private Schools that run International Curriculum are free to conduct their third term examinations online.
