Afenifere has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack or dismiss the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu and Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, for advising FGN not to allow the reopening of schools until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to the Yoruba group, Anifere, they said Buhari should dismiss both ministers as they have had so much time to prepare and plan how schools will resume with some policies and guidelines in place but instead they came into a conclusion to shut down the school for the year and then blame Coronavirus pandemic for it.
Afenifere’s Secretary-General, Bashorun Sehinde Arogbofa, said instead of just shutting down education temporarily, the Federal Government should have allowed pupils to resume and find means of protecting them against COVID-19.

He said, “Adamu Adamu should be sacked, he cannot bring our school system back to the stone age. They had about six months to plan for these children what did the Federal Government do?
“It means the two of them (Adamu and the Minister of State for Education) don’t know what they are doing, so they should go. I think the two ministers in the ministry should go. Why would one say the pupils should resume taking their paper in August and the other minister would come and reverse the order?”
