Reopening of schools: NMA, NUT knock FG

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) have taken a swipe at the Federal Government over its “safe reopening of schools”.

Both bodies said that the directive that graduating classes should resume was not only badly thought-out but also could expose both teachers and pupils to the deadly coronavirus.

Speaking with Punch, the NMA President, Prof Innocent Ujah, said that with the current low level of compliance by Nigerians with COVID-19 safety protocols, it was risky to ask pupils to resume.

On his part, the NUT General Secretary, Mike Ene, said the government was playing politics with the directive and wondered how teachers, who had not been paid salaries in some states, would get money to buy personal protective equipment.
