The Rivers State Government has announced that all schools in the state will reopen from Monday, October 5, 2020.

Commissioner for Education, Prof. Kaniye Ebeku, made the announcement during a briefing with journalists at the end of an emergency State Executive Council meeting, presided over by Governor Nyesom Wike on Friday.

“The council approved that schools in the State reopen on the 5th of October, 2020, with only the following – all secondary schools in the state, vocational schools in the state, universities and other tertiary institutions.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the council based on expert medical advice did not approve the reopening of primary schools in the state, which would await a new date in the future,” the Commissioner said.
