The Federal Ministry of Education is closing all tertiary, secondary and primary schools nationwide over the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country.

The ministry said it is part of measures to contain the spread of the virus.

The permanent secretary in the Ministry of Education, Sunny Echono, confirmed this to newsmen on Thursday. He did not, however, clarify whether schools were closing Thursday or Friday or next week.

When asked for dates and the duration of the closure, Mr Echono said details would be sent out on Friday.

”We will send a press release out tomorrow, thank you,” he said.

The ministry is also ordering the closure of all the 104 Unity Schools in the country from March 26 as a proactive step aimed at preventing the spread of the dreaded coronavirus.
