“All primary and secondary schools both public and private are to remain closed until Monday, Oct. 13, 2014, which is the new resumption date for all schools throughout the federation,” the Minister of Education, Ibrahim Shekarau, announced after a meeting in Abuja, with Commissioners for Education from all the 36 states.
