The news about Anambra State observing school activities on Saturday has been termed to be fake and not true.
” According to the Government spokesperson, he said, “There is no plan to introduce Saturday schooling for pupils in Anambra State”.
The commissioner of information, Chief C. Don Adinuba told Enugu Metro that the government neither planned nor authorized Saturday schooling at all.
He made it clear that the government is investigating the widely distributed fake information by many news outlets.
He stated also that the fake information was never signed by the government thereby it is not real. And nobody knows where the information came from.
“We don’t know from where it came,” he said.
The Commissioner’s statement however implied that the idea was discussed but rejected by education authorities in Anambra State.
“The Ministry of Basic Education advised against the circular,” he told Enugu Metro. And that everyone should ignore such information.
“According to information gathered “The memo quoted by several outlets claimed that classes commence on 30 October 2021 in Anambra schools”
This was to be a stop-gap to give students a maximum 5-day school workload after losing Mondays to a forced sit-in.
Education managers in the Southeast region deplore the violent disruptions in the school calendar by rogue elements.
These elements frighten residents of the Southeast to stay indoors every Monday. But that doesn’t mean that there will be school on Saturdays
