Kaduna State Government has directed secondary schools across the state to reopen on August 18.

Gatekeepers News reports that Kaduna State Government has directed the reopening of secondary schools to enable Junior Secondary School III students to sit for their Basic Education Certificate Examinations.

The Commissioner for Education, Dr Shehu Muhammad, gave the directive in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement read, “The Kaduna State Ministry of Education has approved the resumption of JSS III students who are scheduled to write the 2021 National Examination Council’s BECE between Aug. 23 and Sept. 6, 2021.

“Secondary Schools are hereby directed to resume operations, but only for JSS III students, with effect from Aug. 18.”

The Commissioner instructed all students to appear at their various schools in mufti.

Gatekeepers News earlier reported that the state government had directed all primary and secondary schools in the state to remain closed until the security situation in the state improves.

Muhammad had explained that the schools which were earlier scheduled to reopen on Aug. 9 were to remain shut until the Ministry receives clearance from security operatives in the state.
