BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – As public and private schools close today Friday July 16, 202 to end the second term, the Kaduna State Government yesterday announced it was postponing indefinitely the resumption date for the commencement of the 3rd term. However, the government has said the postponement will not affect students writing the NECO Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations.

In a press statement signed by the permanent secretary of the Minister of Education, Dr Yusuf Saleh, on behalf of the commissioner, “The Kaduna State Government wishes to inform public that as all public and private schools close for the 2nd tern holiday on Friday July 16, 2021, learners are to remain at home for three weeks from this date and will no longer resume on 25th of July as earlier stated in the 2020-2021 academic calendar.

“This is to give the state time to review the current academic calendar to ensure that normal school activities are not affected. However, this three week closure does not affect those writing the 2021 NECO Senior School Certificate Exams.

“The Kaduna State Ministry of Education is assuring the public that the revised calendar will be released as soon as possible and that they will be communicated to accordingly.

“In view of the foregoing, all schools are expected to comply with the above directives as failure to do so will attract appropriate sanctions.”
