OPINION: Are we really prepared before school resumption in this COVID-19 pandemic period?

Last week, the Nigerian government issued an order for school administrators contact parents and students for the full reopening of schools, following the COVID-19-induced closure.

Now we have ask ourselves the following questions,

Are we really ready for school resumption?

Security protocols on the ground, are they realistic?

The security measures implemented by the schools, are they realistic?

Let’s answer the question. Although education is key success, success can be achieved and fully utilized when there is good and solid health.

We must ensure that our children have a safe environment in which learn the knowledge and skills they need for the future. Without a safe environment, it will be very difficult for us move on. Prioritizing school safety for educators and students would be an indication of the government’s commitment protecting investments in the education sector and a validation of Nigeria’s of the Safe Schools Declaration.

As state governments plan reopen schools, a resilient education system needs be built to withstand future crises, and response plans must be included.

The lives of our children are more precious than gold and silver, the government, schools and parents must not compromise in guaranteeing safety guidelines at all times.

As a parent, the ball is in our custody.

As a school, the ball is also in our custody.

As a government, the ball is also in our custody.

Education is key to success, and only good health can make success realistic.
