After a forced holiday occasioned by the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak, schools in at least 11 states of the country have resumed a new academic session today (Wednesday).

It would be recalled that some states had earlier shunned the directive given by the Federal Government for schools in the country to resume on 22 September.

The states picked October 8 as a more realistic resumption date to enable them to put in place the logistics required to prevent the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease and also observe the Eid-el-Kabir holiday.

Some other states however have decided to resume on October 13.

Some of the states which resumed today are Rivers, Benue, Lagos, Oyo, Ekiti, Akwa-Ibom, Kano, Kogi, Ogun, Ebonyi, and Kwara states.

Some of the states resuming on the 13th of October are Niger, Zamfara, and Adamawa.

Mr. Michael Alogba, the National President, Nigerian Union of Teachers, in a telephone interview with PUNCH on Tuesday said that the 8th October resumption was not nationwide, as schools in some states had earlier resumed classes, having received the preventive equipment from the government.
