The Rivers State Ministry of Education has denied reports of governor NYESOM WIKE shutting down schools in the state for two weeks with effect from 22 January, 2021 due to the second wave of Coronavirus.
In a statement signed by Commissioner for Education Professor KANIYE EBEKU, described the report as false and should be treated as fake news.
The statement added that the report is the handiwork of fraudsters and mischief makers who derive pleasure in misleading members of the public and causing confusion.
It further said that appropriate steps will be taken to fish out the mischief makers and would be brought to book to face the law.
The statement, however, urged teachers, pupils and students’ parents and guardians and the general public to ignore the mischievous and misleading information.
