Federal education authorities have ordered all schools to stay closed in response to President Goodluck Jonathan’s directive on gatherings over Ebola fears.
The president appears set to violate his own rule yet again by expanding his re-election rallies amidst outrage following two previous campaigns in Awka and Ibadan.
The Federal Ministry of Education on Tuesday directed that all public and private primary and secondary schools should remain closed till October 13, about a month extension of normal school resumption date.
But while the directive holds, the Transformation Ambassador of Nigeria (TAN) a group campaigning for the re-election of President Jonathan in the 2015 election, has announced four more political rallies for the president.
The rallies are scheduled to hold from Saturday, August 30, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, for the South-South region; while another will hold in Minna, Niger State September 13, for the North-Central Region; and in Gombe three days later for the North East. The final rally will hold in Kano, September 27, for the North West.
By September 27, TAN would have completed its final regional rally at least two weeks before schools reopen for learning.
