SEE GOVERNMENT CONDITIONS ON REOPEN OF ALL SCHOOL

By - - [ News ]

The federal government has advised tertiary

institutions in Nigeria to put preventive

measures against COVID-19 in place before it

announces their re-opening.

Schools were shut on March 19 over the novel

coronavirus outbreak, leaving the authorities to

adopt alternative modes of learning for

students at all levels.

Speaking at the Joint Admissions Matriculation

Board(JAMB) 2020 virtual policy meeting, the

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, said

educational institutions should not wait until

the federal government announces reopening

or the National Centre for Disease Control

(NCDC) issues guidelines for their resumption

before taking actions.

“I urge all the Heads of Institution not to wait

till the announcement on opening before

putting in place all necessary measures in

compliance with the protocols and advisories

of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control

(NCDC),” he said

Mr Adamu who was represented by the

minister of state for education, Chukwuemeka

Nwajiuba, said the government is seriously

concerned about the lockdown of educational

institutions and the Presidential Task Force is

working with facts and figures to limit the

negative effects of the pandemic

“The Presidential Task Force is working

assiduously with facts and figures that mirror

the reality of our current situation and

circumstance. We are making use of them to

respond to the challenges in such a way that

we can limit and manage the negative effects of

the pandemic,” he said

He said for a campus to be reopened, it must

do the following:

(1) Install hand-washing facilities,

(2) Have equipment for body temperature

checks

(3) Provide body disinfectants at all entering

points to their major facilities, including the

gates, hostels, classes, offices, etc.

(4) The whole premises of each institution must

be decontaminated.

(5) All efforts must be geared toward

maintenance of the highest level of hygiene

(6) Ensure social/physical distancing in class

sizes and meeting spaces.

The minister also commended institutions that

are engaging in inventions to counter the

pandemic like ventilators, sanitizers,

handwashing machines among others.

“Such institutions should submit the inventions

to the Federal Ministry of Education in order to

name and honour some of the unique

inventors. We also recommend that institutions

purchase these home-made products. I am

elated with the efforts that led to the

production of Ventilator, Body Disinfectant,

Hand Washing and Liquid Dispensers, Body

Temperature Gauges, and more.”

The minister also expressed dissatisfaction with

the increase in impersonation in the country

“All Institutions should ensure compliance with

the timeline collectively agreed at this Policy

Meeting on the completion of the admission

exercise. No institution should recapture

biometrics of candidates. JAMB has been

directed to make biometrics available for all

institutions and facial images of candidates

available at no cost,” he said.

N2000 post UTME fee

The minister said no institution should charge

more than N2000 for post-UTME, including

bank charges, and no admission should be

made outside the Central Admissions

Processing System ( CAPS).

“The ministry is monitoring compliance and we

would not hesitate to sanction anyone who

violates any of these directives,” he said

The JAMB Central Admission Processing System

(CAPS) is an admission processing system that

is geared towards ensuring quality control,

transparency and credibility of the admission

process.

Speaking on sexual harassment, the minister

said the current rate of rape cases calls for

concern and called on security agencies and

the judiciary to step-up their roles in bringing

sexual offenders to book.

“As the admission process starts, everyone

must play by the rules in the interest of the

nation. Heads of institutions would continue to

be held responsible and accountable for all

actions and inactions relating to the

administration of your institutions.”

The minister later declared the policy meeting

open.
