The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has directed all schools in Abuja to re-open academic activities for students in graduating classes on Tuesday.
A statement by Acting Secretary, FCT Education Authority, Alhaji Umaru Marafa, on Monday explained that the decision followed the re-opening of schools by the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 (PTF) for students in terminal classes.
According to him, the decision was to enable students in Junior Secondary School 3 and Senior Secondary School 3 to write their examinations.
Marafa said only schools that had complied with PTF guidelines and certified fit would be allowed to re-open.
He said: “Only schools that have complied with PTF’s guidelines, inspected and certified, can re-open on Tuesday.
“All schools that have not been cleared are advised to hasten up to meet the requirement for resumption”.
