Mr. Ukah disclosed that the ministry has not taken a decision on the 2020/2021 academic calendar, stressing that based on its programme on phased reopening of schools beginning with certificate classes, only JS 3 students are expected to resume school on Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

According of the commissioner, the resumption is preparatory to the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) organized by the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education scheduled to begin on Monday, September 21, 2020.
