Aliyu, however, assured that the federal government will take “pragmatic measures” in ensuring that the education sector does not lose a whole year because of Covid-19 pandemic.

“Summarily, there is no plan to reopen tertiary institutions until we get to the top of the numbers and also see clearly that we are making significant progress in terms of flattening the curve,” Aliyu said on a radio programme.

“However, we have taken pragmatic measures to ensure we do not lose a whole year in terms of primary to secondary school transition, hence the president’s approval for schools to reopen so that exiting students could return to school and write their examinations some of which are regional.
