SIR: Setting the nation’s priorities proper must be the only intention of each authorities.
The outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic has introduced many countries of the world to a standstill and has additionally led to changes within the lifestyle of the folks.
The Nigerian authorities declared lockdown on March 30 which noticed many establishments starting from the economic system, training, sport and non secular actions closed down.
Nonetheless, Might 4, noticed the primary part of the easing course of and the reopening of some establishments.
Sadly, the training sector was unnoticed of the image and the pupils and college students had been advised to persist with the ready until additional discover.
That is failure on the a part of authorities in the direction of training on this nation. Had there been ample consideration to training significantly within the provision of wanted amenities, there won’t be a lot speak about college re-opening being unsafe and Nigeria would have joined forward-looking nations to reopen her faculties.
If markets will be reopened with given pointers and electoral processes will be held in some a part of the nation, there must be no cause why faculties can’t be on such precautionary pointers in addition to to see the scholars go on with their teachers whereas sustaining security instructions.
Schooling must be a type of sectors deserving utmost concern since, as they are saying, the way forward for a rustic lies in its the educated youths.
I doubt that that is the case in my nation. International locations like Germany, France and likes that perceive the essence of training have cautiously reopened their faculties. I hope Nigeria authorities will quickly comply with swimsuit.
The consequences of retaining college students out of college can be immense when it begins to pan out.
It would result in instances of undesirable pregnancies, cultism, and lack of jobs by non-public college academics and financial disaster.
This may also disrupt educational calendar and it drastically have an effect on the scholars’ educational yr.
I’ll recommend to the federal government that since we can not pause our existence as a result of virus and there’s no finish in sight anytime quickly, the federal government should give crucial assist to our faculties, spell out security pointers and make sure the pointers are duly adopted.
Schooling stays the pillar of each nation; subsequently our authorities should make sure that the pillar stands by making training sectors its precedence.
