Afenifere Decries Disagreement Over Reopening Of Schools

The pan Yoruba social political organisation Afenifere has said the obvious discordant between the Minister of Education Alhaji Adamu Adamu and the Presidential Task Force PTF boss Mr Boss Mustapha over reopening  of schools tends to portray the present government in a bad light.

According to a statement signed by Afenifere publicity secretary Yinka Odumakin, it noted that it is not comprehensible that the PTF would go and announce that schools should go and resume without consultation with the Ministry of Education.

Afenifere added that for the Minister to come on TV and be stamping his feet saying ‘nobody will tell us when we are to open until we are ready,’ was a sign that Nigerians have a disintegrated government.

“The disaster of everyone holding his or her corner under this regime and behaving as if they represent different governments has become a daily occurrence.

“It has now become a sore point that the total lack of coordination and directionlessness is making governance a joke.”Afenifere stated.

The organization explained that it can offer the government consultation without a fee, noted that what a serious government should have done was to put the interest of the people first before the petty egos of little men in power.

“Since the August 4 date is a bit away, Nigeria should call a meeting of the West African countries involved and WAEC to manage the examinations in the interest of the students without compromising their health.

“This is how the government should run to show it cares for the public. The way our officials conduct themselves is becoming just too shameful.”

Afenifere however, advised President Muhammadu Buhari to manage his men so that students would not lose a session to ego fights by government officials.
