Kano State orders schools resumption

Kano State government directed on Sunday that pupils and students should return to school on Monday, May 17 since the Eid el-Fitri holiday is over.

Commissioner for Education, Malam Muhammad Sanusi-Kiru said in a statement issued by the ministry’s spokesman, Mr Aliyu Yusufthat defaulting pupils and students would be sanctioned.
