Schools closure 2011 (Nigeria)
In January 2011, a few days before the start of the new academic term, the Federal Government forced all public and private primary and secondary schools to resume four weeks later for the voter registration exercise. After intital outrage trailed the forced closure, the Federal Government stated that schools will now open three weeks later. There were legal implications regarding the directive but many schools (especially private ones) complied out of intimidation or favour. What is clear is that there needs to be a forum where the school community ( public and private ) can effectively engage with the government at all levels with ONE voice.
Below are selected articles that questioned the Federal Government’s directive in a democratic country.
