Kaduna State Government has announced a new schedule for the reopening of secondary and primary schools across the state.

Commissioner of Education, Shehu Makarfi, made the announcement in a statement on Thursday in Kaduna.

Shehu Makarfi revealed that the resumption of schools would be in phases starting from Sunday, September 12.

He explained that the schools would resume the first term for the 2021/2022 academic calendar.

According to the commissioner, the state Ministry of Education has already worked out strategies towards ensuring the completion of the third term through online learning.

He, therefore, asked authorities in all public and private basic and post-basic schools to comply with the resumption calendar.

This comes two months after incessant attacks by bandits on communities forced the government to order the closure of schools.
