Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education, has approved the reopening of unity schools across the country on October 11.
This was contained in a letter signed by the minister on Wednesday, in Lagos.
Mr Adamu said that the approval is for students in junior and senior secondary schools.
He said that the action is to enable students who have been at home since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic to complete their academic session which will end in December.
The minister advised that COVID-19 protocols should be strictly observed in the schools to prevent its spread among students.
