In a bid to curtail the spread of the ebola virus, the Federal Government has announced that all primary and secondary schools should remain closed for now.
The Federal Government has mandated that all primary and secondary schools in Nigeria should remain shut until further notice.
The government stated that this was necessary to ensure that there is no further outbreak of the Ebola Viral Disease (EVD).
The move was announced by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Youth and Students Matters, Comrade Jude Imagwe.
The amount of time that the students would spend at home was not specified but it was stated that they would be on holiday until the country found a way to stop the current outbreak.
Nigeria has now recorded 11 cases of the disease, the first being Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer who brought it into the country.
