Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, minister of state for education, referred to Lai Mohammed, minister of information, as “Uncle Lai” on Thursday.

While responding to questions at the briefing of the presidential task force on COVID-19, Nwajiuba said Mohammed would give further clarifications.

He had been asked to react to the reports that schools would resume in June and why visually impaired students were factored into online learning programmes.

“I did explain a few days ago that for our impaired students, there are no online provisions for braile. What I believe is that all braile students would have taken from what we call the brail pack and that’s what we can work with at the moment.

“The online services that have been provided can’t actually deliver braile, so at the moment we deeply apologise to students who are visually impaired is that what they have are the packs that they took home are the limits of what we can do at the moment.

“We then will address the issue of when we can reopen. I’m sure when Uncle Lai comes on board, he will tell you that “suru suru surulere”. We all are seriously interested in reopening and we believe we will reopen soon, but I can’t confirm that your children can return to school in two weeks. The issue around the opening has nothing to do with the availability of the schools or not? It has a lot to do with national governance the idea.”
