Eze said, “Teachers, students and pupils are therefore requested to ensure that they abide by the approved guidelines on COVID-19. No person will be allowed into any school without an appropriate face mask/shield.
“Strong monitoring teams have been constituted to monitor compliance with the approved guidelines for the safety of all that operate in our schools.”
The Federal Government had in March shut down schools in the country following the outbreak of ravaging COVID-19.
