Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba: Over 30 WASSCE Candidates Have Recovered From COVID-19 by akelicious(m): 5:20am On Sep 01, 2020
The Federal Government has confirmed that all the more than 30 candidates sitting for the ongoing West African Secondary School Certificate Examination who were tested positive for COVID-19 have returned negative and are back in classes.

Minister of State for Education, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, made this known during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing on Monday in Abuja, where he also revealed that a framework to guide the reopening of universities and other tertiary institutions is being developed.

He did not give a specific date for reopening of schools at all levels, saying discussions were still ongoing.
More than 30 final year students sitting for the ongoing SSCE were tested positive for COVID-19 about two weeks into resumption in schools for revision and had to take their examination from isolation centres.

The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) had explained that the affected candidates were those who were tested at home and the results of their test were only forwarded to them while already in school.

Nwajiuba said: “On the number of students who may have contracted the COVID-19, we have confirmed that all of them are back in class. All of them have tested negative and we don’t have any further cases. There were four in Gombe, one in Kwara, 20 in Bayelsa and so on.

“This morning during an inspection of examination classes, I confirmed from the WAEC officials that they have been discharged and are back in classes.


“As to whether we are reopening schools at all levels, that discussion is ongoing. We have received feedback from all our universities. They responded as to the state of preparedness and that is being tabled at the PTF.

“We have agreed on a framework that will decide how they come back to schools. Tertiary institutions by their nature are somehow independent. It is their Governing Councils that will take responsibility as to who returns when they return, what department because universities are not like secondary schools or primary schools,” he said.

The Minister added that the Governing Councils and proprietors of the tertiary institutions including polytechnics and colleges of education, have a role to play, saying all the variants were being articulated to guide the reopening of the institutions.

Nwajiuba, further disclosed that a broad agreement has been reached with the Universities with the National Universities Commission (NUC) and that NUC, National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) have given the Federal Ministry of Education the full brief while the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) is working on its brief.

He said it was from these inputs that the PTF would take a decision that would be national guidance which all the states in the country would, in turn, translate into what they could use to guide the reopening of the schools. The Governing Councils are also expected to unbundle the framework which is the national response to the students.

How many students are infected with the virus?

Federal Government should do the needful and declare Nigeria, CoronaVirus free country. The situation in Lagos state has made us realise that COVID 19 can be treated privately at home. Many covid19 patients in Lagos preferred home treatment and as such we're given home treatment kit.

Though there is no accredited drug for the virus, it has been managed successfully in Nigeria. With the schools reopening by September, Covid19 has been sent packing in Lagos.

Government should please postponed this exam.

Or WAEC should just waiver 2019/2020 academic year and settle every candidate with a credit in all subject.
