Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has ordered the closure of all public and private schools in Kano State with immediate effect.
This was contained in a statement signed by the State Commissioner for Education, Sanusi Kiru.
Though, no reason was given for the order, the closure may not be unrelated to a spike in cases of COVID-19 in some parts of the country, and abduction of students in neighboring Katsina State.
The statement added that;
“Parents whose children are in boarding schools are to also arrange and convey their children/wards back home from tomorrow, Wednesday, 16th December, 2020. All inconveniences are regretted.”
