The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has kicked against the reopening of schools by the Federal Government due to the COVID-19 pandemic currently ravaging the country.
ASUU National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, spoke with media in Ota, Ogun state.
According to him, the Federal Government needed to address the challenges of education sector before it can talk of reopening schools.
Ogunyemi urged the Federal Government to provide ideal environment and should take the lead by meeting the conditions spelt out by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) before reopening schools.
The ASUU president listed the conditions spelt out by NCDC to include: provision of materials for regular washing of hands, face mask, isolations centres, space for social distancing and hands sanitiser.
Ogunyemi said that many of the schools do not have financial capacities to meet those conditions and requirements for reopening of schools, hence the appeal to the Federal Government to provide the running funds for the principals and head teachers so that they could provide some of these facilities in their schools.
