The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) Chairman in Delta state, Monday Ifoghere, has welcomed the decision commended by the federal government to resume classes for final year pupils and students as to prepare for their examinations.

He also said the decision is an indication that the school system shall soon come out of the lockdown.

Regading issue of preparedness of his members to adhere to the COVID-19 protocols in schools, He said "NAPPS, have taken time to train its members on how to break the chains of COVID-19 infection, how to handle the personal protective equipment (PPE) and how to manage a suspected infested person."

Still speaking, We have also ordered for some of the sanitary wares like inferred thermometer, Handwashing materials, sanitizers and face shields/masks.

Our schools have also set aside a room within the school for possible isolation of any suspected case. Most of our members have sick bay and stand by nurses and caregivers to handle the children.

the NUT general secretary, Mike Ene, said government has not shown seriousness with its directive. According to him, no teacher is ready to go to school because they don’t want to die.

"The government has not assured them properly to go back to school. All what the government is doing is mere politics.”

The commendation of the private owners may not be unconnected with the fact that the source of livelihood for private school owners is from the school fees.

They collect from school children on a termly basis and for the period the schools have been shut down many of them have been finding it difficult to feed and take care of their families.

“Most teachers are starving. In fact, as we resume, we may start looking for new teachers because many of them have silently resigned from the work.

Some are already petty traders while others have gone into farming. Private schools are not paying when the whole place is on lockdown.
