The Federal Ministry of Education has said it is looking for the author of a fake statement which said primary and secondary schools nationwide will resume by November 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic .
The Director of Press at the ministry , Mr Ben Goong, said Nigerians should disregard the fake notice , adding that the author was believed to be mentally unstable .
Goong noted that the Minister of Education , Adamu Adamu , could not have signed a statement where the Permanent Secretary , Sonny Echono , granted an interview , as shown in the fake statement .
Goong said , “ The Federal Ministry of Education has disowned a press release circulating on multiple social media platforms insinuating that schools will reopen in November 2020, describing the release as the handiwork of an illiterate , who , going by the content of his release , also appears to be mentally unstable .
“ The ministry is asking parents, students and the general public to disregard the release in its entirety , adding that there is no iota of truth about the release .
Efforts are on to track the author , and he or she will be prosecuted .
“ We could have ignored the release but for the massive calls from stakeholders expressing concerns . ”
