Following the federal government’s insistence on keeping September 22nd as schools’ resumption date, the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) has threatened to go on strike.
The union said that it would not allow any of its members to teach until it was scientifically and medically proven that the country was free of the deadly Ebola Disease Virus.
But the Federal Government says there is no going back on the date since there is no scientific basis for schools to remain shut beyond the September 22 resumption date announced.
