• The Minister of Education, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, has said that public schools throughout the country will remain in session during the February 14 and 28 elections.

    Shekarau said this in Abuja on Monday after a meeting with the state commissioners for education and stakeholders in the education sector drawn from the National Universities Commission, the National Board for Technical Education and the National Commission for Colleges of Education.

    The government hinged the decision to keep the schools running on the academic lapses that were occasioned by the Ebola Virus Disease that broke out in West Africa and other western nations last year.

    Shekarau, however, said state governments would be mobilised to provide adequate security for boarding institutions marked as polling units for the elections.

    The stakeholders meeting also placed on hold mid-term breaks for both the public and private institutions.
